    What about fluid intake for people not needing dialysis yet?

    For someone with congestive heart failure?

    The situation for patients with chronic kidney disease before needing dialysis, and CHF patients is different than that for ESRD patients. The common theme, however, is salt intake. That is, when patients with ESRD, CKD or CHF start to accumulate excess fluid limiting salt is the first step which will decrease thirst and help control water intake.
