No New Posts Dialysis
Predialysis patients are those not sick enough to require dialysis but who are heading in that direction. What are you doing in conjunction with your physician to preserve your remaining kidney function and delay dialysis for as long as possible? Are you considering or have you had a pre-emptive transplant? Please discuss here.
