Nocturnal dialysis-cramping

I have read where some say they never cramp with nocturnal txs, whereas others say it is definitely possible. Looking for any info on this.

Hi Jane

I’ve been doing nocturnal since ( 4 of 07) never cramped. But it would be possible if you took too much off even over 8 hrs. . Or if you took off too much too fast.

Cramping all depends on the rate of fluid removal. So, if you’re removing too much off on dialysis then you can cramp. But the chances are definitely much much lower on nocturnal since the rate and amount of fluid removal is much less than regular thrice a week in center.
