If the urine volume is less than 800ml/day, they need to take dialysis 12-15 hours for each week, three times is better than 2 times. For people who have no residual kidney function, that is mean have no urine, they need to take longer time to reach adequate dialysis, 3 times per week, 4-5 hours per time is in demand.
