Dialysis and Olive Leaf Exract

Is olive leaf extract affected by dialysis?

I have no idea what effect taking olive leaf extract would have if you are on dialysis.

Olive leaf does have diuretic properties and I do not know what this would do to malfunctioning kidneys.
However it also has anti-hypertensive properties which may be beneficial in cases of kidney disease, and may reduce the risk of peritonitis where peritoneal dialysis is carried out.

This question is best directed to your physician.
