I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
I just look for some info about can kidney failure cause heartburn because I was diagnosed with kidney failure at two years and recently I have heartburn occasionally. Could you do me a favor? Thank you in advance.
Hello, friend. Thanks for your consultation. For your question, please don’t worry and I will try my best to help you.
In fact, heartburn is a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and it is usually caused by acid refluxing into the esophagus. It can occur when you have over eating, strenuous exercise after a meal and digestive system disease. In addition, some foods also can cause heartburn, like acidic juice, chocolate, alcohol, prescription drugs.
As for the question about can kidney failure cause heartburn, there is no evidence to prove. As we all know, our kidney is responsible for removing excess water, toxins and wastes and keeping electrolyte balance. However, for kidney failure patients, their kidneys almost lose it abilities and wastes and toxins will pile up in the body, leading to various complications.
To be frank, kidney failure is not related to heartburn disease. Generally speaking, heartburn can’t occur in renal failure unless the illness condition aggravate and affect their stomach or intestines.
