Swelling In The Digestive System In Kidney Failure

Swelling In The Digestive System In Kidney FailurePatients with kidney failure may have many symptoms around their body, and edema is a common one. Patients may have edema in their ankles or around their eyes. While to some severe patients, they may even have swelling in their digestive system, like their stomach or intestines.

Why patients have swelling in their digestive system?

Kidney failure patients’ edema is mainly caused by two major reasons. One the retention of water and sodium, and the other is hypoproteinemia. Patients with kidney failure have damage in their kidneys, which may destroy patients’ kidney structure. Thereby, lots of protein may leak out through urine, and this can cause patients’ hypoproteinemia. On the other hand, the amount of sodium and water leaked out will be less as kidneys are damaged, so patients will have the retention of sodium and water.

When patients’ kidney damage is very serious, their edema will also be aggravated. At this time, patients may have swelling in their digestive system. Patients with swelling in their digestive system may have symptoms like nausea, vomit, and pain in the stomach.

What can be done to relieve this condition?

To relieve their condition, patients with swelling in their digestive system should restrict their fluid intake first. The recommended water intake is the amount of patients’ urine in yesterday plus 500ml. Besides, patients should also restrict their sodium intake, because sodium have an obvious function in the formation of edema. The condition of patients with swelling in their digestive symptom is very serious, so they should take less than 1g sodium per day, or no sodium in their diet.

Besides, patients should use diuretic to treat their edema, which is very effective in improving their condition. The root of patients swelling is kidney damage, so the fundamental solution of their problem is to improve their kidney function. Thereby, in their life and therapy, patients should follow their doctors’ advices positively. It is important for patients to keep a good emotion in their life. Besides, western medicine may not be effective in the treatment of kidney, but traditional Chinese medicine is good at treat disease systematically, which is beneficial to improve patients’ kidney condition.

In the end, swelling in the digestive system is a complication of patients with kidney failure, and it can be treated effectively. The real difficulty is to treat patients’ kidney lesion. Thereby, it is important for patients to choose the right therapy and healthy lifestyle.
