Fluid Control

Fluid Control

Keeping the amount of fluid you put on between treatments is important. “Fluid overload” is when you have too much fluid in your body that causes shortness of breath, swelling, high blood pressure and excessive weight gain.

Fluid restriction may vary for each individual patient. Factors such as weight gain between treatments, urine output and swelling are considered. If you are on hemodialysis, your weight is recorded before and after your dialysis session


The goal for restricting your fluid is that you will feel better and stay healthy before, during and after treatment with no cramping or blood pressure fluctuation during dialysis treatment.
