Is it safe to take a Saffron supplement while I am on hemodialysis?

I am not aware of any studies that have examined the use of Saffron in a dialysis patient.  There is risk in any herbal supplement that you take that may interfere with other medications you are taking.  I advise against taking medications without discussing this with the nephrologist who is caring for you.
