Treatment for Swelling Feet During Dialysis
What makes concerned is that swelling may be caused by too much sodium in blood, so I hope you can send blood tests to me. In this case, dialysate change may be necessary. Please restrict sodium intake, as exceeding sodium consumption can aggravate water retention. Water intake also needs to be balanced.
