Confirmed I don't have to take all the heart tests again. Just got my updated Itinerary from Mayo. It was close as I was just outside the 6 months time limit. Since I had good results on the last test they said I was good and did not need to retake the tests.

Great!!  Of course, I wish you all the best with the rest of the appointments.

Hi, Valeska! I'm glad you're here. Sounds like you've had a lot of changes in a very short period of time. If you stick around here, you'll find out that you are definitely not alone. People on this forum are helpful and compassionate, because they've gone through many of the same issues. I'm interested, too, in hearing more about you and how you are doing...

For those who want a good story about multi purpose uses for medical equipment, I have this.
I take the used dialysate from the Nxstage machine and use it to fertilize my fruit trees (apples and peaches). I just started again today for this year . Last year I had a huge crop after fertilizing the trees all spring and summer with it. It is loaded with nitrogen from my wife on dialysis. Our nrphrologist calls our peaches -----pee-ches.
This is true recycling.

Welcome. Sorry about your kidneys.
Since it is acute, what are your doctors saying about recovery ? What medications do they have you on? How old are you?.
How can we help you? Any questions about dialysis or kidney disease?

Hi All,
 Here is a bit of my story. As an infant I was born with urinary reflux which damaged one of my kidneys. At the age of seven I had a surgery called re implantation of the uteraters, which was a success. Then in December of this year I got a really bad cold. In January the cold finally went away but, I still had a bad cough that just wouldn't go away. so in mid January I went to see my Doctor, who immediately diagnosed me with pneumonia and very high blood pressure. Later that night I was admitted to Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge Ma. I spent two weeks in the hospital and was diagnosed with Acute Renal Failure. For the time being I am staying with my parents in Ct. For now, I've "almost" gotten use to the routine of In Center Hemodialysis. I'll end this post for now, by saying I hope that I can be of some help to others and others can of some help to me.
Many blessings to everyone,
                                 Valeska Hope Chelminski

Very interesting article. I would like to see some more studies done on a large scale as this could be very useful if it holds up to rigourus testing

Speaking of insomnia this article showed a better way to deal with it.

"Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been found to be effective in the management of insomnia (CBTi), even in difficult cases with comorbid illnesses such as cancer and chronic pain. Moreover, although CBTi is not as widely used as medications to treat insomnia, a systematic review found it to be more effective than drug therapy. Finally, brief CBTi has been demonstrated to treat insomnia effectively, even in as few as 2 in-person sessions when combined with telephone support. The current study by McCrae and colleagues evaluates the cost efficacy of brief CBTi."

It is very early to call coq 10 a hearing restoring agent. A lot more studies will be needed.
It is a helpful agent for those taking statins for cholesterol but even that has not been prove yet to show how much benefit.
