Daily dialysis

Written by  Steve Bone

Well, finally here. Next week I’m doing a whole week of daily dialysis on the unit, testing blood every day to see the effects on blood results, so that when I start the training on the NxStage next month, setting the dialysis prescription will be based on some intelligence over and above the process the Kimal trainer will go through to get this right. Additionally, getting the prescription for Alfacalcidol, Renagel and Tinzaparin (single dose heparin) will be better informed.

I’m doing 6 sessions of three hours each on the Fresenius 4008, and I’m really pleased the unit have been able to accommodate me for this.

I’ll add an update once I know the effects.

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
