I Started off with started off with parrot to deal dialysis at home for a couple of years but then I eventually switch to hemodialysis which I do at a community dialysis unit.

I've been "double voiding" every time just to ease some of the pressure and times I've gotta run to the bathroom... I also had a full achy pain on my right flank that went away after a day or so ...

I have recently moved to the Wingate/Monroe, NC area and I need to find a primary care doctor who has experience with Lupus and other autoimmune disorders who is not a pill pusher.
I don't take prescription meds to manage my Lupus, just all natural supplements, and I'm looking for someone who would support this method of treatment.
So if anyone has a doctor that works well with them and fits my criteria, please let me know.
That great Regina, from 16 to now, again more power to you and keep up the good work.
No malice intended,we are here for each other and we learn from each other and support.
Take care and rest up!!!
