How to Alleviate Diarrhea for Kidney Failure PatientsIf Kidney Failure patients experience diarrhea, they shouldn’t overlook this symptom, as it can induce many serious conditions, such as dehydration and electrolyte disturbance.

This symptom can be caused by the following cases:

Toxins accumulating

There are many toxins accumulating in intestinal tract, and bacteria are apt to breed in this environment. Once the bacteria in foods, like escherichia coli, salmonella and shigella, get into this environment, they will multiply quickly. Kidney failure patients may suffer enteritis and bacillary dysentery, which will cause stomachache, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting and fever.


Kidney failure patients with hypoproteinemia may suffer diarrhea, as protein in blood has the effect of maintaining osmotic pressure. For these patients, the osmotic pressure in blood is lower than that in enteric cavity, so fluids will move from blood to enteric cavity. When there is a lot of fluid accumulating in enteric cavity, this symptom will occur.


Kidney damage is followed by hypoadrenocorticism, which can cause decrease of gastric acid and pepsinum, so stomach will fail to play its function to digest food effectively. That’s another reason of diarrhea.

What can patients do if they suffer diarrhea?

Drink some juice
