Yes, it is normal to lose 10 pounds. Most patients lose 10 pounds in a month during the first year. This loss is usually associated with the fluid that dialysis pulls off or the fat burned due to increase in fat burning. The doctor will usually advise you on the diet at this time to control excessive loss of the pounds.
