Testing prior to NxStage training

All being well, in this coming week I am going to do daily dialysis for 3 hours each day for the 1 week on a Fresenius 4008, taken pre and post bloods at each session to see the effects of dialysing on a ‘traditional’ dialysis machine in this mode, then next week when I start my training and dialysing on the NxStage I will do the same tests. At the end of the second week we will have two sets of data for direct comparison between the two ‘methods’ of dialysis. There is a general desire to see the results by the docs as well as myself to see what the outcome is.

As I understand it, this test has not been performed in the UK so far so hopefully it will prove to be really useful.

Another post while I am testing on the outcomes.

Hi, I'm Steve and have been a dialysis patient on some form of self-care or other since 1990. I've dialysed at home, abroad, in hospital, oh and had a transplant for 7 years. I work in the insurance industry for a City based business, but am very fortunate to be able to work from home 4 days a week. I hope, with my experiences, I can help others on dialysis or those facing dialysis in the future! It ain't so bad! Steve
