Dialysis Day 58 and labs

I didn’t gain as much between treatments, even though there was 3 days between dialysis this time. My urine output was a little better the past several days. I noticed that I get lightheaded lately and “see stars” when I get up to quick: my guess is that my “dry weight” needs to be increased.

Beginning wt: 89.2 kg. End wt: 86.6 kg.

My bronchitis seems to be better today; my chest isn’t as tight and my cough is more loose.

My hemoglobin is good, but my iron is a little low. Phosphorous is higher (I’ve been a bad boy and have been drinking more milk than usual). PTH is now within range for dialysis patients (150-300); my Zemplar was stopped several weeks ago.
