What causes abdominal pain for peritoneal dialysis patients?

-Peritonitis may contribute to your abdominal pain. It is an infection of the peritoneal membrane, caused by bacteria entering through the catheter. This can happen when patients touch the open ends of the connections between the bag of dialysis fluid and the catheter.

In the daily, in order to reduce the chance of getting peritonitis, you should follow correct dialysis exchange procedures. And if you have got peritonitis, the common treatment is to add antibiotics to fresh dialysis fluid. Sometimes, you may require the peritoneal dialysis catheter be replaced.

Peritoneal dialysis provides nearly 10 percent of normal kidney function, but it can not reverse your kidney failure. Besides abdominal pain, there are some other side effects, such as infection, hernia, poor drainage of the dialysis fluid, etc. If you can improve your kidney function, you can get rid of dialysis and live a relatively normal life.

For kidney failure patients, there are some other treatment, such as Blood Pollution Therapy. This therapy can help your body to cleanse toxins from the blood and recover the polluted blood system so as to provide enough oxygen and nutrient to the damaged kidneys. Beside, we will supplement the essential substances into the blood to activate the DNA of damaged cells and speed up their recovery. When your damaged kidneys repair, you can live without dialysis.
