What Does an ESRD Patient Do for DehydrationPatients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or kidney failure have lost more than 85% of the kidney function and thus they will experience many symptoms or complications. Some of the patients may have dehydration, vomiting and fever, which in turn will aggravate the illness condition. Well then, what does an ESRD patient do for dehydration?

Why does dehydration occur in End Stage Renal Disease?

1. Kidney function deficiency

Kidney is in charge of water balance of the body by producing urine. In the end stage of renal disease, the kidney cannot work normally and the renal tubules are damaged. Even the patient drink little water, they may discharge large amounts of dilute urine, resulting in dehydration. In that case, if the patients are not given enough water, they will experience decreased blood volume in the kidneys and thus cause further damage. You can say that taking water is more important than taking medicines.

2. Overdosage or long term use of diuretics

Swelling is also a common symptom of patients with ESRD. In order to remove the excessive water in the body, doctor always prescribe diuretics to increase urine output. However, long term use or over-dosage of diuretics will cause too much water flow out of the body, leading to dehydration.

What does an ESRD patient do for dehydration?

1. Suppling the patients with enough water. If necessary, plasma is needed to transfused to patients. This is to keep the balance of water balance in the body so as to prevent aggravation. Meanwhile, medicines and reasonable diet are also important. You should consult your doctor for that.

2. Keep record of the weight and urine volume in each day. Your doctor will give you suggestions based on your changes.
