Hiccups can be a signal that indicates there is wrong in our bodies one of which is the condition of uremia in patients with kidney failure. Frequent hiccups in kidney failure can affect patients’ normal life like eating, drinking and sleeping. Though there are many factors can cause hiccups, here we only talk about the one caused by kidney failure and give patients some other suggestions.
As we all know, kidney failure refers to the severe reduction in kidney function. The damaged kidneys usually result in the electrolyte imbalance, which can be one of causes of hiccups. Renal failure may cause many complications, and stroke is one of them. Stroke can induce gastrointestinal tract bleeding caused by stress ulcer. Then gastric mucosa will be stimulated and diaphragm muscle is involved. As a result, diaphragm muscle spasm causes hiccups. In addition, medications and bad mood may also be related to hiccups.
Some simple measures can help relieve hiccups in kidney failure more or less, such as breathing into a paper bag; hold your breath as long as possible and then take a deep breath and hold it as long as possible; sleep lying down with both knees bent toward the stomach. However, the best way to treat hiccups in kidney failure is to treat the kidney disease itself.
