Abstract

Gastrointestinal (GI) complications are commonly encountered in patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and are the result of uremia. Since the degree of uremia varies in AKI, a spectrum of symptoms and GI complications may occur. GI complications of AKI include anorexia, hiccups, upper and lower GI hemorrhage, as well as diseases of the small and large intestines. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2010.
