2013-03-30 10:34

Recommended Daily Fluid Intake for People on DialysisKidneys are vital organs responsible for filtering wastes and extra fluids from body.When kidneys fail to work adequately,the patients will be advised to undergo dialysis.However,dialysis only takes a partial function of native kidneys and it is also only performed 2~3 times a week.The patients are advised to follow a dialysis diet as making right choices of food will help in proper treatment. What is the recommended daily fluid intake for people on dialysis?

Why is it necessary to limit fluid intake for people on dialysis?

In kidney failure, the patients will produce less urine output and even have no urine output.The urine output usually stops completely once patients have been on dialysis for more than 6 months. If the daily fluid intake exceeds the recommended fluid intake for people on dialysis, fluid will build up in body between treatments. This can cause swelling and raise blood pressure and would make the heart work harder resulting in heart failure. Also, if the lung is flooded with the fluids, it can make it difficult for the patients to breathe.

Recommended daily fluid intake for people on Dialysis

Fluid restriction varies for each individual patient. The recommended daily fluid intake for people on dialysis is up to the following factors:

* 24-hour urine output. The less urine the patients produce, the less urine they should drink.

* Weight gained between dialysis treatments

* Whether the patient has an underlying heart failure

* The level of daily dietary salt. Salt restriction can help lower fluid intake.

It is hard to follow the recommended daily fluid intake for people on dialysis. The following tips can help them a lot.

1.Restrict food high in salts and spicy foods.

2.Try ice. Ice is more satisfying than liquids.

3.Stay cool. Trying drinking cold liquids instead of hot liquid.
