In peritoneal dialysis, what is the color the returned dialysate (cleansing solution) should be?
The dialysate fluid should be a mild to moderate yellow color. It sometimes can be a very pale yellow and almost clear. If it is dark colored or becomes reddish you would need to alert your doctor or nurse.
You should be able to read a newspaper through italso. If not, that can be an early sign of infection (cloudy fluid).
