How To Remedy Constipation With Peritoneal DialysisConstipation is common among dialysis patients, especially for peritoneal dialysis. However, there are several steps you can take as a dialysis to prevent the problem of constipation.

1. To remedy constipation with peritoneal dialysis, you first need to know the causes of constipation.

There are several factors that cause abnormal bowel function in dialysis patients. On one hand, diet and fluid restriction can lead to constipation. On the other hand, many medications that dialysis patients take can cause constipation.

2. Prevention of constipation

There are two strategies for preventing constipation.

One is to eat a high fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids and get regular exercise. In addition, since many high fiber foods are usually high in potassium and phosphorus, they must be limited in their diet. Strawberries, blueberries, apples, grapes, canned pears or peaches, carrots and corn as well as green beans are all examples of recommended fruits and vegetables.

The other is to apply some natural remedies instead of medications to alleviate constipation. The natural remedies can not only relieve constipation but also repair kidney damage as well as improve kidney function. In our hospital, we use a systematic Chinese herbal medicine therapy to remedy constipation fundamentally. It is an external application and patients just need to lie on the bed to take this therapy. The active ingredients can come to the damaged kidney lesions directly through skin with the help of osmosis device. The effective Chinese herbs have the function of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, dilating blood vessels, degrading extracellular matrix and stopping renal fibrosis, which helps prevent further kidney damage. Besides, residual kidney function can be kept and even renal function can be improved gradually.

As long as your kidney function is improved, your life quality can be improved. Then you may have a little more fluid intake and consume more fiber from the diet, and thus constipation will be remedied.
