A lot of kidney failure patients see decreased urine output after their dialysis,
Some uremic patients have up to 1000ml urine output before the hemodialysis,
however, after their accepting dialysis for several times, their urine output
gradually decreases to only 200 to 300ml per day, and some patients even have
not any urine at all at last.
Chinese Treatment to Kidney Failure Patients
The reasons for that phenomenon can be explained in this way. After the
dialysis, the concentration of BUN and creatinine and other related toxins
obviously lower, so the original function of osmotic diuresis disappear.
The second, the condition of water-sodium retention has improved greatly due
to the ultrafiltration function of dialysis, moreover, the excessive
ultrafiltration during dialysis has made the kidney blood volume decreased
greatly, and another factor is the original kidney disease progresses further
during the period of maintaining blood dialysis. All of these factors make the
urine output decreased after dialysis. Current Treatment for Renal Failure
Here i want to remind the patients with relatively large amount urine output,
the duration time of the dialysis and the hyperfiltration amount should be
adjusted according to the specific conditions. Patients should try to avoid the
aggravating damage to the residual renal function by such factors as the
overmuch hyperfiltration. How to Increase Urine Output for Renal Failure Patients
As for those patients who have already began the maintained dialysis, if only
they could guarantee an adequate dialysis, in that way, their disease will not
be affected and aggravated by the decreased urine output.
In other word, the decrease of the urine does not imply the aggravation of
the patient's kidney function, so for the patients who see their urine decreased
after dialysis, they really have no any needs to worry about too much.
So these are the basic explanations for the influences of dialysis to the
urine output happening in kidney failure patients. More questions are welcomed
