Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more

Can you please tell me the ramifications of someone on dialysis drinking soda?

Can you please tell me the ramifications of someone on dialysis drinking soda?

3 issues: Volume. Interdialytic gains should be limited to 1kg (1liter)/day so that means 2 liters over two days. A soda can is 375ml. Phosphate. Colas contribute to your phosphate burden and increase the need to require phosphate binders with meals. Calories. Empty calories don't benefit you. ...Read more

What is the best time to dink nepro before or after dialysis treatment?

Best time for Nephro: Nephro is a product that is high in protein, and low in potassium and phosphates. If you have an 8 oz. Portion of nephro, it really does not matter when you ingest it, unless the patient is fluid overloaded. That is because hemodialysis (hd) does not remove protein. I would take it at the start of one's hd session to make sure an adequate amount of fluid, potassium and phosphorus is removed. ...Read more

Tell me why patients with kidney failure eat and drink what they like only during the first few hours of dialysis?

Tell me why patients with kidney failure eat and drink what they like only during the first few hours of dialysis?

Nurses being nice: The total fluid removal target is programmed at the beginning of the dialysis run. Fluids consumed on dialysis are added to the total weight target. The removal target is doable from the onset of dialysis. If you drink 32 oz in the last hour, it is difficult to get this (and the preprogrammed amount) all off in the last hour. ...Read more

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.

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 am on dialysis. I cannot stand those fiber drinks. Can i take 2 colaces (docusate sodium) a day ? I know the gastrointerologist does not like using laxatives.

I am on dialysis.  I cannot stand those fiber drinks.  Can i take 2 colaces (docusate sodium) a day ?  I know the gastrointerologist does not like using laxatives.

Ask Doctor: Colace can have added sodium (docusate sodium) in it, and your nephrologist may not want you taking things that can upset your electrolytes, even if it's such a small dose through your stool softener. So, consult with him/her first, and then you'll have peace of mind. Instead of the laxative drink, you maybe could do it naturally eating organic greens/vegetables instead. ...Read more

What exactly will dialysis do?

Clean blood: Dialysis removes waste products from the blood and extra fluids to replace the function of the kidneys and prolong life. Without it death is usually eminent in a few months more or less. The quality of life on dialysis is less than that with functioning kidneys due to substantial fatigue and other medical problems and medications. ...Read more
