Abstract: Understanding of changes in water compartments during hemodialysis (HD) is an important part of ensuring the effectiveness of the procedure and minimizing both intra- and post-dialysis complications. The purpose of our study was to investigate the direction of changes in water sectors in patients with CKD 5D with preserved residual kidney function (RKF) and without RKF. Methods. Prospective observational study enrolled 88 hemodialysis (HD) patients. All patients performed laboratory examinations and measurements of water balance using the BCM monitor before HD, hourly after the start, and 30 minutes after the end of the session. Depending on the presence of residual kidney function, patients were divided into two groups. The first group with RKF included 52 patients, the second - without RKF - 36. Results. Analysis of water balance parameters allowed to conclude that 26 patients (26.13%) were hyperhydrated (OH/ECW above 15%), including 13 (36,11%) in the group without RKF and 10 (19,2%) - in the group with the preserved RKF. There was no statistically significant difference in the groups. When comparing baseline values between groups of patients, it was found that in the group with preserved RKF the albumin level was significantly higher at 8.94% (p
