  • Anyone familiar with VA dialysis

    My creatine is 5.03 so dr. says I need dialysis now or soon. Am thinking about going to the VA for it. Do they do it? Anyone a vet that can give me info would be appreciated. Joseph

    The VA does offer those services, but I believe their slots fill up quickly at the VA facility so they end up outsourcing to different dialysis clinics closer to where you are. My brother started at the VA then was transferred to one run by Fresenius which he really loves. I chose to go straight to the clinic vice at the VA. Good look and hope this was in some way helpful.

      It will depend on your location as to whether they have a dialysis unit or not. If not they will hook you up with a unit in your area. Check with your Renal department for all the info. Myself they sent me off site because it was closer. I started with VA, Dallas and had good experience with them. Remember take meds they give you, follow diet, and definitely stay within fluid intake guide line. Best of Luck.
