Does a person still urinate on dialysis?

Does a person still urinate on dialysis?

Yes and...: Most dialyzed patients are still making urine but with highly variable volume although less than it used to be. So, it's not uncommon for them to void 0-4 times in 24 hrs. These patients just simply lost their kidney function to handle the balance of fluid, electrolye, etc. In fact, occasionally, few still pee as often as the healthy person due to so-call high output renal failure.

My mother is on dialysis 4 session was done but still she is not passing urine normally, she's passing urine like a drops. She's drinking 1ltr water in a day.

Probably normal : If she is in kidney failure, temporarily from serious insult..infection, trauma or such it is quite normal to have little or no urine. She may return to making urine later as she recovers. If permanent failure, she could produce no urine from now on. 1 liter of water per day is the necessary fluid to keep normal body functions going . Your doc can give you more details knowing the problem. ...Read more

I've been on peritoneal dialysis for two years. I'm now noticing that i'm urinating s lot less than before. Should this be a cause of concern, ?

Loss of urine: This is average, actually, for a person on peritoneal dialysis. Over about 5-8 months, a person receiving hemodialysis loses urine production. A person receiving peritoneal dialysis typically retains urine flow for 1-2 years, sometimes longer. Loss of urine flow diminishes native kidney clearances, so your diet will have to be stricter and your nurse/doctor may have to raise dialysis bags/day. ...Read more

Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
