How Much Can I Drink If I Miss A Dialysis SessionHow much can I drink if I miss a dialysis session? Because of unexpected incidents, some patients have to skip one dialysis session. Then, they are faced with the question about fluid intake.

Dialysis and overall health condition

Dialysis is suggested when patients’ kidney disease develops into end stage or kidney failure. As one blood purification method, the main dialysis function is to filter out extra fluid and metabolic wastes. Take every dialysis treatment and drink correct amount of water as doctor recommends, so fluid and sodium balance can be maintained.

What happens if patients miss a dialysis session?

If the patient skips one dialysis treatment, build up of extra fluid and waste products are more likely to cause a series of problems, such as fluid overload, obvious breathing changes, loss of appetite, sleepiness, congestion, etc. Some of these complications may even threaten patients’ life.

How much water can patient drink if he misses a dialysis session?

In this case, the basic principle of drinking fluid is to keep weight in required ranges and make patients feel ease and comfortable. If they still have enough urine, the amount of fluid intake may be equal to the amount of urine output in the previous day. If not, it is safe to drink fluid that can only maintain normal life. To reduce the consequence of missing dialysis, the following treatments can help keep patients in safe condition.

Medicated Bath: It is one treatment that can increase patients’ sweating amount and improving blood circulation. Therefore, more fluid and waste products can be removed out by skin.

Acupuncture: This remedy can also help increase urine output to reduce the burden on kidneys, and patients can reduce the dependence on dialysis.

Some other remedies can also make dialysis patients increase their fluid intake, but all of these treatments should be taken with professional doctors. If you want to try, you can contact us by leaving a message below or sending email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com.
