Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Chronic kidney Disease
(CKD) is the gradual loss of kidney function. Since how long is he on Peritoneal Dialysis
(PD)? You should be taking to his NEphrologist
so that he can examine him and suggest any rescheduling in PD. It is common for a CKD patient to have loss of appetite, not to worry. He will require few blood tests to see for the amount of wastes in his blood and also the hemoglobin
level. If the test results show that the dialysis schedule is not removing enough wastes, your doctor may change the dialysis routine. This might involve changing the number of exchanges, increasing the amount of solution used for each exchange or using a dialysis solution with a higher concentration of dextrose. In addition to this, he should be eating right amount of food, low in sodium and phosphorus. Kindly consult a dietitian for this so that he/she can develop a diet plan
suiting his weight, personal preferences, remaining kidney function and other medical conditions, such as diabetes
or high blood pressure
. Finally, he should be taking his medications as directed by his Doctor for achieving the best possible results and go for regular follow up.
I Wish him Good Health, Take Care.
