This week’s installment of Will He Or Won’t He Start Dialysis….

His labs looked good yesterday during our clinic visit, and BUN had dropped to 37. We decided to add more fluid – an extra 5 ml/hour over night – and SOME of the beneprotein – and see how things look next week. Yay!

    1. I will ask about this the next time he gets IV fluids. I know he doesn’t get the same stuff everyone else gets because of the kidney function, but I’ve not stopped to ask what’s in it – I guess I didn’t realize that aluminum was even a possibility. Thanks!
