I met a 26 year old woman recently who was referred by a friend of the family for a second opinion. I seem to get a lot of new patients in this way.  She was found to have advanced kidney failure, and needed to go on dialysis immediately.  Unfortunately, the prior year she had seen her primary care doctor for headaches and was noted to have a blood pressure of 140/85.  But no kidney function tests were given.

Because peritoneal dialysis is usually performed daily, potassium, sodium and fluid don’t build up too much during dialysis session, so diet is more liberal for people on peritoneal dialysis than hemodialysis.
