    Stomach Bloating in Peritoneal Dialysis

    2014-04-03 09:17| Font Size A A A

    Peritoneal dialysis is one of dialysis treatments for people with kidney failure. It is a procedure, where extra fluid and waste is filtered out of body by peritoneal membrane. While it can keep the patients alive, it can cause stomach bloating.

    Stomach bloating in peritoneal dialysis

    When peritoneal dialysis is performed, the patients will be asked to carry fluid in the abdomen. This may sometimes cause the abdomen to appear distended and cause a sensation of bloating. If the patients experience this disorder, it can affect the patients’ appetite greatly.

    Stomach bloating and a feeling of fullness can make the patients eat less food. This is very likely to cause malnutrition.

    Another stomach problem in peritoneal dialysis is stomach pain. As a catheter is placed into the belly, it is very likely to cause bacteria to invade into body, thus leading to peritonitis. Stomach pain is a sign of peritonitis.

    Peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis can make the patients live a very hard life. Therefore, they are eager to find an alternative treatment to it.

    Alternative treatment to peritoneal dialysis

    To treat kidney failure without peritoneal dialysis, Kidney Transplant is a treatment option for the patients. It is a procedure, in which the diseased kidney is replaced with a healthy kidney. However, it is difficult to get a matched donor and also the patients have to depend on immunosuppressive agents, which may cause many complications.

    Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help the patients reduce dialysis frequency and even get rid of dialysis. This therapy can stimulate the self-repairing of kidney tissues and cells, thus improving renal function. Thereby, some patients will be able to get rid of peritoneal dialysis.
