Hi guys…. so I’ve started PD about 2 months ago, and now my feet and ankles are swelling. before PD even with poor kidneys I didn’t go through this, my BP is not high either. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Are you diabetic?

    It's best to ask your care team, since sometimes it means that your dry weight & treatment goals aren't being matching; when doing the machine. Hopefully they can give you some answers and get you feeling better. 👍

    you are definitely not getting enough dialysis if your body is holding onto liquid. i only ever had edema in my fingers but when it was bad i would do green bags for a couple nights instead of yellow. you probably just need more fluid pulled or more cycles. i would call your dialysis nurse for sure
