The Amount Of Fluid Intake For Patients With Chronic Kidney Failure?
In the afternoon, my mother was a chronic renal failure patient and was required to have hemodialysis once a week. Already 8 months my mother underwent routine HD. What I want to ask patients with CRF must be to limit the amount of intake and fluid that enters the body. Then what about my mother, who thanks God, BAK and her bowel, was smooth. HB was good at 10.5 even though ureum was 87 and creatinine was 7. Thank you
Hello Nopex, Thank you for the question.
Chronic kidney failure is a decrease in kidney function due to damage to the kidneys. Someone stated experiencing chronic kidney failure if it has decreased the rate of filtration / filtration for 3 consecutive months. The kidneys function to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body and remove side substances from the body. Decreased kidney function can cause fluid, electrolytes, and metabolic waste products to accumulate in the body. Handling of patients with chronic kidney failure aims to overcome complaints experienced by patients and prevent deterioration of kidney function. At a later stage, the patient must undergo hemodialysis / dialysis or kidney transplant.
Patients with chronic kidney failure are advised to control the intake of fluids that enter the body. A decrease in kidney function can cause impaired fluid balance in the body so fluid intake must be controlled. Usually the recommended fluid intake is adjusted to the patient's kidney function and the patient's condition in general. The smoothness of BAK is not the only factor to determine how much amount of fluid can be consumed by sufferers because BAK may be a smooth sufferer because of the side effects of diuretic drugs that are usually given to patients with chronic kidney failure. The best step that your mother can take is to consult with a specialist in internal medicine who treats your mother. Discuss with your doctor how much fluid your mother can consume per day, remembering that the doctor has examined your mother from the start and better understands your mother's current kidney condition. Advise your mother to take medication regularly according to the doctor's recommendations.
Hope this helps.
