Nausea And Vomiting In Renal Failure

2013-02-07 10:52

vomitingNausea, vomiting, poor appetite and fatigue are very common gastrointestinal symptoms among renal failure patients. Sometimes the reactions of nausea and vomiting will be very strong that patients can not even take oral medicines.

We need first know why renal failure cause nausea and vomiting so as to seek proper and effective treatments because nausea and vomiting in renal failure are not as simple as usual gastrointestinal discomforts. If the root problem can not be solved, nausea and vomiting can not be treated from the root or it can even become worse.

Generally speaking the causes of nausea and vomiting in renal failure include acidosis, electrolyte disorders, heart failure, gastrointestinal edema and uremia encephalopathy, etc.

Elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN) level

Renal failure can cause accumulation of excessive urea nitrogen in the blood stream due to decreased renal filtration ability. Urea enzymes can decompose urea into ammonia which can stimulate the gastrointestinal mucosa and cause nausea and vomiting.

Renal failure can cause declined renal concentrating ability. Many patients will have frequent night urination which can cause hemoconcentration and high BUN. That is why many patients will have obvious nausea and vomiting when they get up early in the morning.

Drinking some water after getting up can relieve hemoconcentration and lower high blood urea nitrogen so as to prevent nausea and vomiting in the morning.

The root cause of nausea and vomiting in renal failure is damaged renal functions, therefore the key point is to repair renal damages and improve kidney functions so that high BUN, high creatinine as well as other metabolic disorders can be balanced naturally.

Micro-Chinese medicines is based on the theory of renal fibrosis which aim at blocking further renal scarring and reverse renal damages so as to slow down illness progression and recover reversible renal functional units. It mainly has the functions of vasodilation, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degradation of extracellular matrix so as to provide adequate blood, oxygen and necessary nutritions to the kidneys and promote the repairing and recovering of kidney functions.
