What Is Ascites?

In simple words, ascites is a bodily disorder caused due to the build-up of fluid in the abdominal cavity. This fluid can also travel to the chest cavity and cause shortness of breath by putting pressure on the diaphragm. (1).

What Are The Types Of Ascites?

Liver cirrhosis is responsible for 85% of ascites. The table below lists the other types of ascites and what organ they are associated with (2).

Type Of AscitesAssociated Body Organ/Part
HepaticLiver, Inferior Vena Cava
MalignantMost organs of the body (with cancer)

Some of the uncommon types of ascites are:

  • Refractory ascites – These are ascites that recur after treatment. The patient is prone to developing various hepatic complications in such cases (3).
  • Chylous ascites – This is an uncommon type of ascites. It is caused by leakage of lymph from a ruptured lymph vessel (4).

A report published in StatPearls found that people with cirrhotic ascites (fluid buildup in the abdomen due to liver cirrhosis) have a 50% mortality rate in 3 years. It was further estimated that people with refractory ascites (ascites after treatment) had a survival rate of less than 50% in 1 year.

What Causes Ascites?

Ascites most commonly occurs due to structural damage of the liver, leading to improper function. A liver disease like cirrhosis is primarily accountable for ascites. Apart from this, cancers that affect different organs like the colon, stomach, liver, breast , and pancreas are another major cause that can lead to ascites. Other causes include (5), (6), (1), (7):

  • Excessive alcohol intake, causing alcoholic liver disease leading to cirrhosis.
  • Excessive intake of sucrose and fructose, leading to nonalcoholic liver disease leading to cirrhosis.
  • Anorexia
  • Portal hypertension
  • Hepatitis
  • Hypoalbuminemia
  • Clots in the veins of the liver and heart
  • Pancreatitisi  A disorder caused by pancreatic inflammation that occurs when the pancreas begins to digest itself due to digestive enzymes.
  • Kidney (nephrotic) issues (1)


There is an epidemic of nonalcoholic liver disease in younger people from the overconsumption of sucrose (table sugar) and fructose (from high fructose corn syrup sweeteners in soda).

Symptoms Of Ascites

Common symptoms of ascites are:

  • Enlarged abdomen
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen legs
  • Reduced urine output
  • Weight gain
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Bloating
  • Indigestion, nausea, and/or vomiting
  • Problem in breathing while lying down(1)

Indraske, a blogger, spoke about her symptoms of ascites in her personal blog. She said, “Day to day I was noticing that I’m getting tired quicker, my legs are swollen and my tummy expanding again (i).”

In addition, when cirrhosis reaches the resistant ascites phase (the stage where the accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity becomes resistant to medical management),this may activate renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (a complex hormonal system in the human body that regulates fluid balance).This, in turn, may cause symptoms of hyperaldosteronism(excess production of aldosterone hormone) and renal imbalance (8).

protip_icon Quick Tip
If you have cirrhosis, avoid eating raw or uncooked fish or meat, which may help reduce the risk of ascites infection.

Sometimes abdominal discomfort and swelling may be caused by bloating. Check out the next section to learn how it differs from ascites.

Bloating Vs. Ascites

Bloating and ascites can be distinguished based on their severity and underlying causes. Bloating is the uncomfortable feeling of abdominal fullness and distension (9). It is commonly caused by factors like overeating or gastrointestinal issues and is usually a temporary and non-serious condition.

Ascites, on the other hand, is a pathological condition in which the abnormal fluid accumulates in the abdominal cavity. It occurs due to serious underlying conditions such as liver cirrhosis, heart failure, or cancer (1). Ascites leads to significant abdominal swelling and requires medical evaluation and treatment.

If you think you have ascites, consult a doctor immediately. They may employ the following diagnostic methods.

Diagnosis Of Ascites

After a basic physical exam and investigation of your symptoms, ascites is diagnosed mainly by two methods.

  • Fluid sample – With a needle and syringe, a sample is taken from the abdomen, this fluid is tested for infection and cancer.
  • Imaging – MRI, CT scan, and ultrasound are done to get a better picture of what exactly is happening inside the body and causing the ascites.

Other tests that may be done are:

  • Urine analysis
  • Ascitic fluid analysis
  • Kidney function tests
  • Liver function tests
  • Varied blood tests depending on other symptoms
  • Electrolyte levels (1)

In addition, peritoneal dialysis treatment method is used for patients with end-stage renal diseases or renal failures to remove renal fluids.

There are several home remedies that can provide relief from ascites and its associated symptoms. We are not saying that you can cure ascites with these remedies – because the damage is already done. A person would have to change their lifestyle completely to begin to heal the liver. The best home remedies that can help you with relieving symptoms are listed below.

Nutritional management can play a crucial role in managing ascites and preventing their recurrence. A diet low in fats and cholesterol and sodium restriction is recommended for patients with ascites. Here are some diet recommendations for you:

  • Use salt substitutes instead of regular salt (low-salt diet).
  • Citrus fruits like mandarins, oranges, grapefruits, etc. are natural diuretics and will help you to remove the excess fluid from your abdomen.
  • Pineapple is also a natural diuretic. You can eat it by itself or drink the juice.
  • Mangoes are known to help relieve symptoms of ascites.
  • Oats are not only excellent for your heart but also for the treatment of ascites. They are good diuretics as well.
  • Eat whole grains and foods rich in fiber.
  • Eat a high-protein diet
  • Potassium and magnesium-rich foods such as dark leafy vegetables, avocados, mushrooms, beets, and bananas should be consumed. They reduce water retention and lower blood pressure.
  • Consume significant portions of melons to stay healthy and fight ascites. Melons aid digestion and help in restoring body fluids.
  • Coconut water is rich in potassium and keeps the body hydrated.

Foods To Avoid With Ascites

  • Reducing table salt intake is important to treat ascites. Salt leads to liquid accumulation. However, sea salt, with its 72 minerals, can help by pulling water into the cells to help dilute these minerals and drive cellular metabolism.
  • Alcohol is one of the major causes of ascites. It should be avoided entirely.
  • Avoid high fructose corn syrup.
  • Milk and its derivatives may become difficult for the body to digest and are best avoided for ascites patients.
  • Avoid starchy food like rice, potato, corn, etc.
  • Stay away from items that cause flatulence.
  • Avoid processed food items as they contain high amounts of sodium.

protip_icon Quick Tip

It is always better to consult your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet.

Yoga For Ascites

The benefits of yoga are known to all. It stimulates blood and lymph flow in the body and helps in treating multiple ailments. For ascites, these three asanas or poses are recommended by yoga specialists.

  • Baddha Padmasana – Also called as the Locked Lotus Pose or Bound Lotus Pose, this asana stimulates chest development and also internally massages the abdominal organs. The circulation improves and excess fluid is directed either out of the body or back to the venous system.
  • Lolasana – Known otherwise as the Pendant Pose, this asana is a little higher on the difficulty level. However, it activates the body’s core excellently and helps to relieve the pressure in the abdomen.
  • Mayurasana – The delicate Peacock Pose, like the Pendant Pose, activates the abdominal muscles of the body and improves blood and lymph flow. It is a difficult pose and beginners can use some support to do it.

If you are a beginner, please do not attempt the yoga poses by yourself. Practice them under a specialist’s supervision to avoid any complications. In addition to these, it is also important to get good sleep as it heals the body cells, relaxes the body, and restores body homeostasis.

Illustration: StyleCraze Design Team

Ascites is a medical condition characterized by fluid accumulation in the abdominal cavity resulting from improper liver function in most cases. Besides liver damage, certain types of cancer, pancreatitis, kidney failure, and clots in certain veins may lead to ascites. It is important to know that excessive alcohol consumption or excess intake of foods with high fructose or sucrose content can cause liver cirrhosis or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, respectively. Swollen legs, bloating, difficulty breathing in a lying position, and weight gain are common symptoms of ascites. The home remedies discussed in this article cannot cure ascites but help manage the symptoms and support recovery when combined with positive lifestyle changes.

In cirrhosis, the liver’s functions are impaired due to scarring of the liver tissue. There is high blood pressure in the venous system of the liver, i.e., there is portal vein hypertension. As a result of this, fluid accumulates in the abdomen. It is a complex process (1).

What is ascites fluid?

Ascites fluid is protein-containing serous fluid that collect in the abdominal cavity.

What color is the abdominal fluid?

The accumulated abdominal fluid is usually clear to pale yellow in color.

What are the complications of ascites?

Ascites, if left untreated, can lead to severe complications. These complications are related to infections or are due to the excess pressure that has built-up on the abdominal organs:

  • Bacterial peritonitis (infection of the ascitic fluid)
  • Kidney failure
  • Protein malnutrition
  • Hepatic encephalopathy

Malignant ascites is due to cancer and there ares malignant (cancer) cells in the ascitic fluid. These cancer cells are usually secondary malignancies of primary tumors of ovarian, colorectal, pancreatic, and uterine origin. Such patients have a very poor prognosis, and their treatment options need to be carefully weighed to avoid further complications (26). Cancer accounts for about 10% of ascites cases (28).

What is an ascitic drain?

When medications do not work in removing the fluid build-up, doctors opt for the ascitic drain. It is a process in which a tube is carefully inserted into the abdomen, and the ascitic fluid is drained out into a bag. This process is also called paracentesis (ascitic tap) (29). In some cases, the doctor may even go for liver transplant or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) procedure to manage this condition (30).

How long does it take for ascites to go down?

The median survival of people with ascites that is not responding to treatment is approximately six months to one year (31).
