If your nephrologist in Deerfield Beach has referred you for dialysis, you probably have a lot of things on your mind. Maybe you aren’t even sure which questions to ask. Your care team is made up of several specialists from doctors and nurses to dieticians and more. Here are a few things to know and some suggested questions to ask your team.
1. Diet Considerations
Your dietician will focus on your individual needs throughout treatment. Ask your dietician what changes you need to make to keep yourself physically at your best.
Be sure to ask your doctor or nurse what type of dialysis you need, how often you will need treatment, and how long treatment will take. Knowing this is key to planning your schedule and using your treatment time wisely.
