Hi.


Dialysis or known as hemodialysis is usually performed on people with kidney failure. In patients with kidney failure, there is an increase in blood urea and creatinine levels. Too high urea levels are not good for the body so it requires dialysis / hemodialysis.


In patients with kidney failure, there is usually a buildup of fluid in the body such as in the legs, stomach, genitals, so that it can occur on the face. So that in patients with kidney failure, there is an increase in body weight.


maybe what your nurse meant was that your actual body weight was not known because of the excess fluid in your body. If the fluid is dry / has not accumulated in your body, you can find out your actual weight (dry body weight).


Every time you do dialysis, your body weight does not have to be lower than before. In addition, it is important to carry out routine controls to your internal medicine specialist.


Here is an article you can read about dialysis


may be useful. Thank you
