I just wanted to say hi to this wonderful community and give you a little bit of my background. My older sister, who is 40 years old, is a type 1 diabetic and lost her kidney function at 28 years old. She got a kidney from a very generous family whose daughter tragically died in a car accident in 2008. Her kidney worked for about 9 years before it lost its function last year. She initially went into manual PD, got peritonitis, was transferred to HD, got an infection, and went back to PD. She is currently on PD and waiting for a second transplant. I live in the US and she lives in Mexico, but we are constantly in communication and I visit her quite often to help out.
I have found a lot of useful information in this forum about issues patients go through, so I thought it was a good idea for me to sign up to the forum. Thank you for letting me be part of this community!
