if a patient is already on dialysis, why do we still advice abstinence from NSAIDS? You can't do any worse harm can you?

Great question. It all depends on the residual renal function (RRF).

A number of studies, including CANUSA, have shown that dialysis patients (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis) that have residual renal function (RRF) will have a lower mortality than those w/o RRF. Thus, we try to limit NSAID use in the former patients.
