    Dry Weight

    Everyone is different and it uaually takes some adjusting and can change. This is something which is decided by your dialysis team and you.Ask your team how they are deciding for you and be sure to report changes in symptoms. I've been on since June 06 first hemo and then PD. I'm still messing with dry weight levels as my own weight changed as I felt better.
    Good luck

      When I get on PD will I continue to drop the weight like I have on Hemo? I know they usually pull off between 3.8L and 4.8L with Hemo.

        People usually gain weight on PD. There are calories in the fluid that you absorb. I gained 20 pounds after starting PD, but I'm maintaining my weight now.

            Thanks so much I also realized that if I waited a bit, that it would load instead of trying to boot it super quickly, this may help other people, once you get to the Homebrew Channel just wait a sec and then load the emulator, but this should keep it from crashing on Brutal - Paws of Fury, one of my brothers favorites. Itll be a great weekend, Thanks a lot man.
