Had a visit from my doctor today on dialysis, this is what we discussed. I've been doing perfect with my diet all those levels are right where they should be. On the other hand my blood pressure has been going out of control which is exactly what happened last time I was on dialysis. We are going to try to switch around some of my meds for the time being and hope it helps. Unfortunately I am also suffering from a low blood count and very low iron. If it that doesn't get better I will have to get a blood transfusion which will make it harder for me to get my transplant. I am also not getting the full effects of dialysis, my doctor thinks it's from all of the problems I am currently having. With a low blood count and high blood pressure they are unable to bring up the speed of the dialysis without it being dangerous. Hopfully in the next week or so we will know where everything stands. Until then just have to keep going forward till I get my match.
