Dialysis and 5 Myths

MythbustedDear Readers!

Last month, for World Kidney Day, the British Columbia Renal Agency in Canada released a publication called, “A time to correct some myths about kidney disease”.  It lists five myths about kidney disease and attempts to correct them with good information.  I found it informative and hope you do too.

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them. All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.

      I checked it and it works for me but that may not be the case for you. Are you still having problems? If so, give me more information, please, about what browser you’re using and such. Thanks. I hope we can get it fixed.
