Nausea After Dialysis: What Should I Do


Nausea and/or vomiting may occur during routine dialysis treatments. Most cases are probably due to hypotension (low blood pressure). Prevention and treatment of hypotension is important.

These flu-like symptoms are sometimes experienced by hemodialysis patients. The water quality in the dialyzer, the composition of the dialyser itself, the dialysate composition, and the rate of filteration can all cause problems, which can be reduced by adjusting the dialysis perscription. However, do remember that these are also symptoms of peritonitis.

If nausea and/or vomiting persist, treatment may include giving medication for nausea and vomiting. Take some good foods for dialysis patients:

Low potassium foods like lettuce, cucumber and eggplant are excellent vegetable choices for a dialysis diet. Do not add salt to the vegetables you prepare. Salty foods increase your thirst and you may reach your fluid restriction too soon. Grapes, applesauce and blueberries are low in potassium.

Dialysis treatments can leave you feeling weak, and protein will help to increase energy and fight infection. You can consume lean beef, chicken, turkey and fish freshly prepared using herbs and spices instead of salt.

Of course keep a good mood will make you feel bitter on dialysis, any question email to :
