Hello,. my father has kidney failure and has been on dialysis for almost two years, two times a week. lately my father often coughs and suffocates, then nausea and vomiting. and well, my father had consulted a doctor and the doctor had given medicine related to what he had been experiencing lately. I want to ask, is there a way to overcome it (other things besides medicine), for example food / drink abstinence. Thank you very much.

Nausea and vomiting are one of the side effects of dialysis / hemodialysis, in addition to other complaints such as headaches, itching, muscle cramps, etc. Here are some foods that should be limited for patients undergoing dialysis / hemodialysis:
- Limit consumption of foods containing high potassium, such as orange, bananas, tomatoes, dates, and potatoes.
- Limit consumption of foods high in phosphorus, such as milk, cheese, dried beans, peas, soda, and peanut butter.
- Limit fluid consumption
