About

Out of 100, only 18 patients develop oliguria. [1]

Oliguria is considered to be a urinary output of fewer than 400 milliliters which is less than about 13.5 ounces in 24 hours. It can be caused due to dehydration, infection or trauma and urinary tract obstructions. It can be one of the earliest signs of renal failure; however, in most cases, it can be reversed.


Ages Affected: It can affect people of any age group.


Symptoms

- Vomiting, bouts of diarrhea, high fever and unable to drink enough fluids to replace it.

Treatment


Treatment of oliguria depends on the cause. Some generic treatment options are:


Medications: Your doctor may prescribe you with medications. Also, an IV drip that quickly rehydrates your body or dialysis to help remove toxins until your kidneys can work correctly again. Also, he may prescribe you to take to restore any electrolytes lost during this time.


Specialists: For a second opinion or a better understanding of this you can connect with a doctor or specialists at mfine who will provide you with a full-treatment program.
