  • Saline Sensitivity

    Hi, I have noticed a huge amount of weight gain (from ascites) since starting dialysis. I barely drink 2 cups of water a day and monitor my food intake. I do know historically I had to use plasma lite instead of the 0.95 saline solution otherwise I would start swelling within an hour. Are there any lower salt concentration solutions for dialysis, I am very concerned this has now introduced a sodium overload on my system - my sodium levels are continually going up. Furthermore I am removing 5-6 litters a week from the abdomen (third spacing so not removable by dialysis!! Help!!
