Urine Volume Changes and Back Pain in Dialysis Patient

Posted: by kidney      Time: 2013-03-26 16:11

Topics: Dialysis

Details: I take dialysis for about 3 years. And now I find my urine volume changes. Is it caused by psychological statue? Is it a good choice to reduce my Dialysis from 3 to 1 per week? And I feel pain in my abdomen and back during dialysis. What causes that?

Expert Answer

The urine quantity is not changed by the psychological statue and it just can be changed by the statue of the kidneys condition. As it is known that one of the kidneys’ function is to produce urine, and as the kidneys get damaged, the kidney tubules can not reabsorb function and the secretion function are not as normal as the normal kidneys do. As a result, the quantity of the urine will change.

And the liquid intake can affect the quantity of urine. What’s more, the medicine you take also can affect the quantity of urine such as the bp medicine.

And for normal kidneys, there is a toxic substance in it, which is the wasted stuff which should be discharged out of our body trough urine such as creatinine and urea.

And it is normal if you feel pain in your abdomen and in your back as you know during dialysis, the blood volume will change and the electrolytes is changing, so the pain can happen to any part of your body. But it will be alright when the dialysis is done. So please don’t worry about it, you can tell the doctor about it and the dialysis doctor will change the flow rate to make you feel better.

I do not suggest you to reduce the frequency of your dialysis to one. You know the quantity of urine output can not tell the renal function has improved, so the toxin substances will store in your body when those substances can not be discharged well, and for a long time the doctor may put you back for 3 times dialysis.
