Today I received the most beautiful gift that I’ve ever received- this INCREDIBLE painting from @serendipiaartstudio! Muchas gracias Mary! It’s my first real piece of art! 😊💜 Besos! 😘 If you aren’t following her studio yet, you should be! Her art is incredibly vibrant and colorful, and can bring a smile to anyone’s face!
The more people that are aware of this, the better. We CAN afford universal healthcare and education in the United States and it’s time we start demanding it as loudly and as often as we can. #notfakenews#Repost @attndotcom
My dialysis schedule changed this week- instead of T/Th/Sat, I’m M/W/Sat. I’ll have to wait two days between treatments twice this week, which I haven’t had to do before, so I’m hoping I feel okay! Only 1 hour and 40 minutes left! Did anyone else’s dialysis schedule change this week? Also- let’s keep our sunny movement going! Share your #sunnies4dialysis selfies from your treatments this week!

A variety of kidney bean, this is a large plump bean that is pinkish-brown in colour with reddish-brown streaks. Borlotti beans are widely used in Italian cooking and have a sweetish flavour with a smooth creamy texture. They work well in salads and casseroles. The dried variety needs to be soaked in cold water before cooking.
The borlotti bean is full of protein, which is an essential nutrient which helps form the structural component of body tissues and building muscle. It is classified as a high-quality protein because the bean contains all the nine essential amino acids that can only be obtained through consumption. One cup of borletti beans contains 17 grams of protein.
You'll get a big fibre boost whenever you consume borlotti beans, since each cup gives you 17.7 grams of fiber, or 71 percent of the daily value for those who follow a 2,000-calorie diet. Fibre adds bulk to make your diet more filling without adding calories since it isn't digested, making it beneficial for those who are trying to lose weight. It also helps you control your blood sugar, lower your cholesterol and decrease your risk for heart disease and digestive issues such as constipation and haemorrhoids.
You can buy borlotti beans dried or canned – cannellini beans make a good replacement if you can’t find them.

Take so many pills they barely fit into the frame! at least 2 renagel per meal or 1 with coffee, 1/2 a diuretic twice a day, 1 BP and 2x docusate twice a day for PD. This doesn’t even include my weekly injection I have to give myself 😩 #awarenesscreateschange#esrd#kidney#dialysis @getloudforkidneys
Tienes un trasplante renal y quieres que te dure mucho ese riñón. ¿?
Lávate tus manos, siempre antes de comer (incluso y aunque suene extremo, antes de orinar y después de ello), en las manos pueden existir tantos patógenos que te asustarías cuantos, y qué causan. •
Es importante que seamos l i m p i o s, SIEMPRE💗, no sólo al momento del inicio del trasplante.
Creo que demasiadas personas piensan en qué comer y pocos en qué hacer antes de ello.

As a dialysis patient, these are the medications I take every day! I’ve been on dialysis since September of this year. I have two pills for blood pressure, one for cholesterol, a diuretic and 3 calcium supplements (my phosphate binder). I’ve always been bad about remembering to take my meds, so I have been taking all of these minus one binder in the morning and have been taking the last binder before bed at night. Binders are generally supposed to be taken with each meal because the calcium binds best to the phosphorous that way, but because my numbers are still within a good range, my dietician is ok with the way I’ve been taking my binders. What meds are you taking? @getloudforkidneys #awarenesscreateschange#myhandsarewrinklybecauseimanoldsoulright
(LINK IN BIO) “Since 2005, I'm suffering from Autoimmune Deficiency. Missing even a single appointment with my doctor gives me skin infections with sepsis, infection of brain, epilepsy and other complications.
The doctors have advised me to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Before this surgery, I also need to get an urgent kidney transplant. My family's financial condition is poor. My father is a daily wage labourer and mother is a housewife. We've already exhausted my father's income. Some of my friends and relatives have offered help to support my treatment so far. We've done whatever was possible for us but now we don’t have anything left. Please help my family out. Seeing them struggle is more difficult that battling this disease.” #crowdfunding#family#kidney#savelifes#donate#help

Gagal ginjal adalah kondisi dimana fungsi ginjal menurun yang mengakibatkan ginjal kehilangan kemampuannya untuk menyaring cairan dan sisa-sisa makanan. Kondisi ini menyebabkan kadar racun dan cairan berbahaya terkumpul di dalam tubuh dan dapat berakibat fatal jika tidak diobati.
Penyakit gagal ginjal disebabkan oleh beberapa penyakit serius yang secara perlahan-lahan berdampak pada kerusakan organ ginjal, seperti hipertensi (darah tinggi), Diabetes Mellitus, kelainan ginjal, kanker, dan penyumbatan saluran kemih.
Penyakit lain yang juga dapat menyebabkan kegagalan fungsi ginjal apabila tidak cepat ditangani antara lain adalah kehilangan banyak cairan secara mendadak (muntaber, perdarahan, luka bakar), tuberkulosis (TBC), sifilis, malaria, hepatitis, pre-eklampsia (komplikasi pada kehamilan), obat-obatan, dan Amiloidosis (penumpukan protein amiloid pada jaringan dan organ tubuh). Berikut ini adalah resep herba untuk membantu mengatasi gagal ginjal.
