A tele-care management system for peritoneal dialysis (PD) includes at least a container, a holder, a removable detection device and a mobile device. The container is for placing effluent fluid of peritoneal dialysis. The holder is for placing the container. The removable detection device includes a detection unit, a processor and a communication interface, wherein the processor detects the turbidity and the chrominance of the effluent fluid and performs a quantitative analysis on the effluent fluid, and generates a turbidity prediction value based on the detection result of the detection unit. The processor respectively calculates first and second turbidity values, which correspond to first and second turbidity respectively, for the effluent fluid according to first and second algorithms and selects one from the first and second turbidity values to generate the turbidity prediction value based on a predetermined threshold value sent to a mobile device for further processing.
