How I came to home hemo-dialysis training

I would much rather have posted a COPY of my own blog post, but the almighty google sayeth: "Thou shalt not use copy-and-paste, even from thine own blog post"


And therefore dear readers, please go forth to my new blog location because I will be damned if I use almighty google's blogspot ever again.

In case you're wondering, this website contains the diet regimen that I know follow:
