For people in the later stage of Chronic Kidney Disease, these normal amounts of fluid may cause problems. Too much fluid can build up in the body and be dangerous. Even though dialysis remove excess fluid and wastes out of body, it is not as effective as healthy kidneys. The build up of too much fluid causes swelling and increase blood pressure, which makes the heart work harder. Too much fluid can even build up in the lungs, making it difficult for patients to breath, which becomes a possible reason of shortness of breath on dialysis.
