How can Dialysis patients reduce Swollen Feet and Ankles? My mother in-law is on dialysis and her feet and ankles are so swollen. How can she bring it down?
Dialysis is a common used kidney replacement treatment for kidney failure patients, but it can not work like your own kidneys for 24 hours every day. During two dialysis sessions, fluid builds up again. If you have massive protein leakage, hypoproteinemia can also lead to swelling. Besides, if you do not find out the correct dry weight, it is likely for you to have inadequate dialysis so that fluid can not be cleared away from body. And if you do not supplement enough protein, you may have swelling as well. In addition, you should check whether your heart works normally or not, which is also a cause of swelling.
What should dialysis patients do for reduce swelling?
1. To strictly restrict water and salt intake
The amount of water you can drink is your urine output the day before plus 500ml. And salt intake should be less than a beer bottle cap. Between the two dialysis, you should control your weight gain no more than 4%. Your blood pressure should be controlled into 140/90 before dialysis.
