While many dialysis patients look at their time spent on the dialysis machine as a chore, many embrace the time they get to themselves. Because you are hooked up to a machine and can’t really go anywhere, this is great time to take care of some things you have been needing to accomplish. Balancing your bills, responding to emails, reading a book, or catching up on your favorite shows are all things you will have time to complete during your dialysis treatment.
One thing you should know about your dialysis treatments is that they may affect your sleeping cycle. You may start to experience difficulties falling and staying asleep. If you are attempting to stay positive and are doing your weekly exercise, it should help you be able to sleep at night with more ease. Getting the rest you need will increase your overall mood and your body will be better adjusted to the new treatment you are receiving.
When you start dialysis, you get a nutritionist who can help you start a new diet. One of the biggest things to be aware of is limiting your fluid ingestion and to control your thirstiness. Avoiding foods high in potassium, phosphorus, and salt are also imperative for your new dialysis diet. Your nutritionist will help incorporate the foods you need but will keep your diet tasting delicious.
Hopefully, this blog series has helped you understand your dialysis more and how it will positively impact your life.
