  • 2x/week just as safe?

    A new study seems to prove that for those dialysis patients who do not have other medical problems, twice weekly dialysis is just as safe, and may also save residual kidney function. Here is a link to the study. I plan to ask my nephrologist to try switching to twice-weekly dialysis soon.

        ☺️ Patients with a kidney function greater than 30% which is measured by GFr (your doctor can explain). God bless and much success
