End Stage Renal Disease And No Bowel Movement

2014-04-21 05:43

End Stage Renal Disease And No Bowel MovementEnd Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients usually suffer from no bowel movement or constipation. Constipation is a common complaint in the ESRD patients. And here we will talk about the causes and management to alleviate constipation in ESRD.

First, causes of constipation in kidney failure patients is multifactorial.

 Dietary restriction

A low-fiber diet, poor fluid intake, sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise and various medications especially calcium and iron supplements.

Early reports have shown that constipation is a major problem in end stage renal disease and dialysis patients due to diet and fluid restriction and the need for certain medications, in particular phosphate. Constipation itself is not a life-threatening condition. However, besides being uncomfortable for the patients, it can have devastating effects for some people on dialysis.

Second, how to alleviate constipation in ESRD patients?

To prevent constipation, a diet which is fiber high is generally recommended. Fiber will stimulate bowel activity, increase stool bulk and decrease intestinal transit time. For ESRD patients on dialysis, dietary limitation, especially high fiber foods, which are high in potassium and phosphate are restricted. Researches have proven that increased fiber diet was as effective as laxatives and preferred choice for patients on dialysis.

Apart from diet management, end stage renal disease patients also need to take treatment to repair kidney damage which is the radical solution for constipation relieve.

To repair injured kidney tissues, we recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is on the basis of Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicines. In this therapy, the herbs first are micronized and then are wrapped up into two medicated bags. With the help of osmosis fluid and osmosis machine, the active ingredients can come to the damaged kidneys directly. After a period of treatment, kidneys can absorb some nutrients and get enough oxygen and blood from the ingredients. In this way, kidneys can get repaired and kidney function also can get enhanced.

As long as kidney function is improved, constipation will be alleviated greatly. If you want to learn about the Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, you can leave us a message to kidneycares@hotmail.com or consult our online experts to get the answer.
