Update 9/18/14: Sorry I haven’t updated this in a while. However, I wanted you to know about the Dialysis Patient Citizens (DPC) Education Center website. Lots of great information. And use the search button on this website. I’ve probably written about it.
Update 1/3/13: I found this great resource from ESRD Network 15. Good for New Patients. Especially good video about fluid control. http://www.esrdnet15.org/treatmnt.htm#fluid
This link will take you to the section on Fluid Contrl but scroll up for more stuff. Network 15 did a great job with this!
Update 10/16/12: Kidney Diet Blog. Found this good source for recipes and foods that will help with CKD and ESRD. http://www.renaldiethq.com/
Update 9/13/12: Kidney Newsletter. Sign up to get this from the National Kidney Foundation. http://www.kidney.org/patients/kidneyliving/index.cfm
Update 9/9/12: Working on Part Three of the “Dialysis and the Procedure”. Should be done today. Watch this space. And thank you to all my readers. I really appreciate the kind notes!
These are some of the topics I’m working on…
#Dialysis and Blood Saturation measure
#Dialysis and Disaster
#Dialysis and Infection Control
#Dialysis and When Things Go Wrong
#Dialysis and Blogging
I found this site a while back (should have been there ages ago!) and it’s got some great resources for information about a wide range of kidney issues. The American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP) has a page of brochures you can read and download. https://www.aakp.org/education/resourcelibrary.html
While I am working on some more posts, take a look and read up. Make a point of bookmarking this page and the AAKP site.
