What can you all share with me about being on Dialysis? Yes, I have taken all the kidney smart classes, read the material that DaVita shared. I am looking for some first-hand insight. I had labs done today, and even after all my hard work my GFR dropped 5 points putting me very close to needed dialysis. Keeping my fingers crossed we are not there yet, and a transplant is close. I meet with my nephrologist next Tuesday. In November she told me if I kept my GFR above 15 I could avoid dialysis and today it came back at 17.
Yesterday, I had a failed infusion site and the highest blood sugar I have seen in years. I got my blood sugar back down after a couple of hours but, today my labs didn't come back like I had hoped. Everything except the GFR was stable, but that doesn't help. It's weighing on me. I am trying to remain positive, but want to brace myself for what's to come.
