A male patient age 62 needs dialysis but he weighs 460..does he qualify for dialysis?
Hi Ms. Berend, being overweight might make it difficult to set up the vascular access, which is the first step of dialysis. However if the vascular access is successfully set up, I don't see a block there.
Quest. Trying to find out how does a Dr visit show them and urself your exact weight height and BMI .
Yes, Elainr is right. Each patient is weighed before and after the dialysis session. This monitoring of weight helps the healthcare professional to decide how much fluid needs to be removed from the body. It is better to see a doctor to ask for suggestions. The doctor will diagnose the condition.

What is w healthy we for a 5ft 92 year old woman
In my opinion, it all depends on your typical lifestyle and your health condition. Since no one leads exactly the same lifestyle as others, you may already have developed your own lifestyle that makes you feel comfortable. FYI, my grandma was 84 years old. She used to be chubby and has been suffering from acute heart disease for a decade. Her family doctor suggested that a stent should be put into her heart and a change in lifestyle is required. Thanks to the operation and the advice from the doctor, right now everything's back on track and she feels quite satisfied with her life. For now, she's about 130 pounds.So I guess it's just a reference. You may want to figure it out according to your current condition.

Here is a standard weight charts for men & for women  which bases on the individual being dressed in light clothing. However, It is only for reference use and should not be used as a medical guide.
