What should I know about dextrose sodium chloride injections?

Administration of dextrose sodium chloride injection should help the kidneys to eliminate the fluid resulting in increased urine production. Your doctor will be aiming for a balance between fluid input (IV infusion) and fluid output (urine). Infusing IV solutions may cause fluid overload and edema if too much is given to people with congestive heart failure or kidney damage. Monitoring of blood glucose is required, especially in people with diabetes. As with any injection, a dextrose sodium chloride injection may cause problems at the injection site, (where the IV goes through your skin and into your vein) like swelling, redness, irritation or infection.
