2. Gastrointestinal edema

Gastrointestinal edema is another possible cause of excess vomiting in renal failure. Vomiting symptom is usually accompanied by poor appetite, diarrhea, abdominal distension and even hematochezia.

3. Acidosis

Kidneys help to discharge excess acidic materials and when kidney function gets impaired, acidity in the blood increases. With acidosis, renal failure patients are also very likely to suffer from vomiting.
