The doctor sadi that you know more about this area and should be asked about my concerns.
What is the best fluid ot use to protect my membrane? What about using PD 6 days and one HD a week or less?
I have been on PD for 2 years, type II diabetic, and a bit heavy 266' 5'10.5" (Fluid on wt) using Baxter PDII fluid mostly 2.5 and some higher. My clearance numbers have never been much above 1.7. I feel very good and staying active, having built a treehouse for my grandkids, etc. So, I feel as well as I ever have since starting PD.
As my urine out put decreases and my test numbers dip below 1.7 I am worried, as I like PD and want to stay on it as long as possible. I have lost 30lbs seeking enough loss to be further considered for a transplant. Blood glucone and other items are in balance and controlled.
Any suggestions as to fluids, theray or anything I can do to stay on PD is requested. Again, I hear that the old number was 2.0 and now it is 1.7. I feel very good and think maybe my number could be a little lower and still provide life support. WHat do you think?
