Dialysis may cause hernia


A hernia is a possible side effect of Peritoneal dialysis, a type of home dialysis treatment. The insertion of a catheter to allow dialysis solution in and out of the abdominal cavity can weaken the abdominal muscles that keep your internal organs in place. This can cause a tear, and increase your risk of getting hernia. If you experience symptoms of a hernia during peritoneal dialysis, seek medical attention promptly. Delaying medical attention can lead to complications, so it's essential to act swiftly if you suspect a hernia. #PeritonealDialysis #HerniaRisk #MedicalAttention #DialysisComplications
