Gastrointestinal complications of acute kidney injury
Management of Acute Kidney Problems
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.
