    Yes, it's usual to have less pee after starting dialysis to no pee at all unless he has Polycystic Kidney's which keep peeing. The nurses told me that I would stop peeing but in rounds in the center the doctor told her that I was different than others on dialysis. The only reason I pee less is because they have limited my liquid intake. If I drink more than my 5 cups of liquid a day, I pee more. My weight is usually the same. 1.5 K is taken off each time I go and no matter how much I drink, I pee it out. As for the lassics I don't know and someone else can help you there on this sight..
