Why Do Dialysis Patients Suffer From MalnutritionDialysis will bring a series of side effects like low blood pressure, muscle cramp, infection and malnutrition. Well then, why do dialysis patients suffer from malnutrition?

There are following causes which can lead to malnutrition in dialysis patients.

1. Insufficient nutrient intake

Before dialysis, patients limit protein intake strictly and consume insufficient calorie. Moreover, poor appetite, vomiting and nausea and other symptoms make patients already suffer from malnutrition.

2. Uremia complications and malnutrition

In uremia, metabolic acidosis makes protein synthesis reduction but breakdown increase so as to cause negative nitrogen balance.

3. Side effects of medications

Iron supplement or antibacterial agents for infection can lead to poor appetite, nausea, vomiting and other gastrointestinal discomforts. As a result, malnutrition can occur.

4. Infection

Severe infection in uremia can lead to increased catabolism, accelerate the breakdown of protein and fat. But the synthesis of protein and fat decreases.

5. Dialysis related factors

Inadequate dialysis can cause declined appetite. Insufficient protein and calorie intake can cause protein malnutrition.

In order to avoid side effects of dialysis, we recommend alternative remedy for kidney disease. Alternative remedies in our hospital include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, medicated bath, foot bath and Mai Kang Mixture. The medicines all come from nature so you have no need to worry about the side effects. The active ingredients can get into kidney lesion directly.
