Q

Is bowel prep for colonoscopy the same for everybody?

Can a dialysis patient go through the same pre-colonoscopy process as normal person? My father is a dialysis patient. He drinks a bottle of Boost in the morning and drinks maybe 12 ounces of water all day. Is he supposed to drink 63 ounces of mixture or is there a different procedure?

Yes, he has to take the prep as prescribed. The fluid is not absorbed and won’t cause any trouble with his dialysis.
