How much fluid should patients with Stage 4 Kidney Failure and Diabetes take?
If patients start to retain fluid at this stage, they may need to restrict the amount of liquids they consume. Signs of fluid retention are swelling of the body (in the feet, hands, and face), sudden weight gain, difficulty breathing, elevated blood pressure. These symptoms may indicate decreased urine output as renal function declines.
The most suitable fluid intake should only be given after analyzing your detailed disease condition. Want to get an exact answer? Please Email us at email@example.com with more of your illness situation. Our kidney doctors will make a comprehensive analysis and reply you promptly within 24 hours.
