Why Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Feel Nausea and Vomiting
People with nephrotic syndrome may suffer from nausea and vomiting, well, do you know the possible causes? Here, in this text, we will talk about this problem detailedly:
What are the possible causes?
1. Loss of protein
In nephrotic syndrome, the tiny blood vessels(glomeruli) in the kidneys become thickened, as a result, large amounts of useful substances including protein will leak into urine, resulting in hypoproteinemia. In this case, swelling can not only affect the arms and legs but also the gastrointestinal tract. Without effective control, functional disturbance of digestive tract will appear. And it often manifest as nausea and vomiting.
2. Metabolic acidosis
Due to damage to the glomerular, kidneys can not work adequately and more and more waste products, toxins, etc will build up in the blood. Such as, creatinine, urea nitrogen, uric acid, guanidines, phenols, etc. And these toxic substances within in the blood can stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and lead to nausea and vomiting.
3. Effects of urease
In advanced stage of this disorder, changes of material metabolism can stimulate the bacteria lives in the gastrointestinal tract produce a substance named urease, which can make urine resolve into ammonia. And this substance can irritate the digestive tract and lead to nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, ulcer hemorrhage and so on.
