2014-04-27 00:27| Font Size A A A

Digestive Disorders in CKDDigestive disorders usually occur in advanced CKD. It can largely worsen patients’ condition and lower patients’ life quality. The following contents may help patients to improve their condition.

The early symptoms of this condition include poor appetite and dyspepsia. In severe cases, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may occur. The following are two common reasons of digestive disorders:

Anabrosis in intestines and stomach

Urea is a kind of protein by-product, which will accumulate in patients’ bodies when kidneys fail to excrete these metabolic wastes. Some bacterias in intestinal tract can decompose them into ammonia, which can irritate gastrointestinal mucous membrane. This can cause inflammation, anabrosis and even bleeding in intestines and stomach.

For this condition, patients’ condition can get improved through the following steps:

1. Reduce the protein intake. Thus, it can reduce the urea from the source.

2. Remove the urea, patients can drink some diuretic teas to help them excrete these wastes, such as corn silk, stinging nettle and artichoke. Generally, these teas are kidney friendly, while patients should take them in right amount. If you want to know more about them, you can email us at

3. However, the complete solution for this symptom is to improve the kidney function, so that this waste can be eliminated by kidney.

3. As swelling is a consequence of massive protein loss, patients should take right amount of high-quality protein.
