Can Kidney Problems Cause Digestive IssuesKidney problems can indeed cause digestive issues, especially in the advanced staged of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Follow me to learn something about it, so that you can take measures to manage this problem.

What are the digestive issues that kidney disease causes?

Since illness conditions differ from person to person, patients may have one or several digestive issues, such as:

● Poor appetite

● Nausea and vomiting

● Bad taste in mouth

● Gastrointestinal tract bleeding

● Peptic ulcer

● Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

If you cannot understand clearly, please consult the doctors online.

How does kidney problem cause digestive issues?

In fact, you can say that wastes and toxin accumulation if the culprit of digestive issues in kidney disease patients. What kind of waste? That is urea nitrogen.

High urea nitrogen level in the blood will lead to many problems. That’s why high BUN (blood urea nitrogen) level always scares kidney disease patients.

Urea nitrogen is the by-product of protein metabolism, and is discharged by the kidneys as a kind of waste. Due to damaged kidneys, excessive urea nitrogen cannot be excreted, and then build up in the body. The deposition of urea nitrogen stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in various digestive issues.

How to to manage digestive issues?

To deal with this condition, you should take measures to accelerate the discharge of urea nitrogen. That requires you to improve your kidney function. Traditional over-the-counter medicines may help you relieve digestive issues but cannot help you improve kidney function. On the contrary, long term and large dosage of medicines can aggravate kidney damage. Therefore, I recommend you to take Chinese herbs, which are very natural and helpful for repairing injured renal tissues so as to protect the remaining kidney function.
