I suffer from Focal Segmental Glomerulonephritis (FSGS) and has cath placed in abdomen in order to begin dialysis. However, I have severe stomach cramps. What is the treatment for me?



Treatment for Severe Stomach Cramps In FSGS Patients With DialysisStomach or muscle cramps are a common complication during dialysis. Patients tend to experience cramps in the lower extremities, but they can occur in the hands, arms and abdominal muscles as well. Various causes can lead to stomach cramps such as low body magnesium, low blood sodium concentration and caritine deficiency.

What is the treatment for severe stomach cramps in FSGS patients?

Minimize weight gain between dialysis, that is, restrict your fluids. The more you take in, the more you have to take off to get to your dry weight. The more taken off, the more likely you will get cramps.

Keep a proper dry weight. If your blood pressure is low, you have no edema and you are cramping, you may need to have your dry weight increased.

Take carnitine pills. If you have lots of cramps, your doctor may measure a carnitine level in your blood. If your level is low, you can be given canitine levels, which can help prevent cramps.

Quinine sulfate: Some of you already use quinine. It can prevent cramps at the beginning of dialysis. It is best if you take it 1-2 hours prior to dialysis.

Improve your renal function with Chinese medicines. The radical treatment for stomach cramps in dialysis is to improve your renal function. Here we recommend Chinese medicines which include many therapies such as Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They can improve your renal function through expanding blood vessels, improve your blood microcirculation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing nutrients and removing blood stasis. When renal function is recovered, your symptoms can be relieved from the root. It is also possible for someone to get rid of dialysis. And then stomach cramps from dialysis will disappear naturally.
