  • Infant Dialysis - 6 month old infant

    Our six month old grandson has been on dialysis since one month of age for three times a week and they are now talking about reducing his dialysis to two times a week and perhaps if continual progress is made, he will be taken off dialysis. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Our six month old grandson is on dialysis three times a week however he has regular urine and bowels movements?

      As a matter-of-fact, my sister has a friend who has been on dialysis for many years and the last time she went in they told her she didn't need it anymore. This is an adult, not an infant, but even my nephrologist told me that dialysis doesn't have to be forever. That is wonderful news for you and my sister's friend!
