I’m in a conference this weekend so I won’t have time to post much. In the meantime, check out some of my blogs from past weeks.
I’m especially focusing on Fluid Control again. I can’t tell you how important this is for dialysis patients. Just last week I was in the waiting room before dialysis and the woman next to me was talking about how it was difficult for her to breath before dialysis because she is so full of fluid. The next thing she said made it clear why. “I usually take off six kilos”, she said. She hardly weighed six kilos herself! Well, my Dialysis Preacher came out and I tried gently to explain the importance of controlling fluids. Later, she was sitting next to me in the center when she “soured” and they had to call in the EMT’s to take her to the hospital. I felt so bad for her but I knew it was mostly preventable. See my postings “Dialysis and Fluid Control” and “Dialysis and Cramping” and I mention it in, “Dialysis and AMA“
