What could nausea and dehydration post kidney dialysis suggest?

A friend of mine was suffering from kidney failure. She went on dialysis and improved so much that the doctor decided to remove her from it for a week as a trial run. She got sick with nausea, diarrhea, and dehydration and is now in the hospital. Can you tell me what is going on?

Hi,

Diarrhea and vomiting may be due to acute gastroenteritis or electrolyte imbalance or dehydration or anemia or septicemia or hyperuricemia etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Use tablets Ondansetron. Use tablet Sporlac. If symptoms not improved please consult your physician/nephrologist and get it done blood urea and serum creatinine, he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu,
