What Causes Nausea and Vomiting in PKDNausea and vomiting is a uneasy feeling in the stomach, and it seams that patients with PKD are at the higher risk of nausea and vomiting than the general population. What causes nausea and vomiting in PKD? Making clear the accurate causes can guarantee the following treatment, because different causes need different managements.

Brain aneurysm: It is a common complication of Polycystic Kidney Disease. According to the research, people with PKD have a 5% to 10% risk of developing an brain aneurysm. Sudden severe headache, nausea and vomiting, and pain when moving the neck all can remind us to pay attention to brain aneurysm. In this situation, an accurate diagnosis and correct treatment to deal with this complication is crucial for patients’ overall health. If your nausea and vomiting is due to this cause, you should tell the online doctor timely so that he can help you make a right treatment plan and a healthy diet plan.

Build up of too many wastes and toxins: This symptom usually occurs when some of kidney cysts have grown too big and oppress their surrounding kidney tissues. When kidney tissues are damaged by kidney cysts, they can’t do their job normally and then excessive wastes deposit in the kidney. As a result, patients who have PKD and large kidney cysts may suffer from nausea and vomiting easily. At this situation, kidney repairing treatment or kidney replacement therapy is needed to remit patients’ symptoms and maintain their basic life.

Dialysis treatment: When patients’ kidneys are functioning 15% or less, they may begin dialysis. However, if the dialyzate flows too fast, a lot of wastes in the brain can’t be removed from the body fully that is more likely to cause nausea and vomiting. Therefore, reminding your doctor or nurse to make sure the dialyzer is working normally is very necessary.
