We are on PD. Can I take my own machine on a Dialysis at Sea Cruise? Since I do not use hemo is my cost less?
Dialysis at Sea cruises are expensive! If you do PD, you might be better off going on a regular cruise and making arrangements with the cruise line to have your PD fluid delivered. There are some good discounts on regular cruises (this never happens with the Dialysis at Sea ones), too.
Another option may be to switch over to manual exchanges while you are on the cruise. Its been a while since I have been on PD so Im not sure if this is possible. May be able to start a while before the cruise to see if you handle it ok and it controls your labs and how you feel.
Just a suggestion…
