Causes And Treatment Of Constipation In Uremia DialysisWhat is the cause of constipation in uremia dialysis? In this article, we invite expert Zheng falei to introduce the cause of constipation. This is a good news for constipation patients.

First, what is the cause of constipation in dialysis?

Dialysis patients will have less activity, restricted water intake and bad function of intestinal peristalsis, which can cause constipation. Patients on dialysis need to limit their fluid intake. Therefore, to prevent constipation, they need to eat high fiber food, drink more water and take exercise regularly.

Second, which diet can prevent constipation?

1. Eat more animal protein like milk, eggs, lean meat and fish while eat less bean products and other plant protein foods. This is because plant protein has low utilization, which can worsen uremia. Elder patients are often lack of protein and they usually suffer from muscle atrophy and weight loss, so they need to consume relatively more protein.

2. Sufficient heat supply guarantees the storage of protein in your body. If you consume less heat, it can lead to malnutrition. On the contrary, it can result in hyperlipidaemia and atherosclerosis. Heat is mainly from cereals. You need to eat less fat, especially animal fat.

3. A low fiber diet is one of the most common causes of constipation in renal patients. Many high fiber foods are high in phosphorus and potassium, however, and thus not renal-friendly. Getting adequate fiber by choosing renal-friendly fiber foods may help relieve constipation.

Diet can do some help for relieving constipation in dialysis patients. But it is not enough and cannot treat constipation from the root. The holistic treatment for constipation should repair injured kidney and improve renal function. When kidney function is increased, dialysis frequency can be reduced or even be eliminated. In this condition, not only constipation but also other side effects of dialysis will be relieved effectively and radically.
