My sister is 55 years old is on dialysis since April. She has recently developed side effects, water retention, nausea, headaches and low white blood count. She is waiting for a transplant from our brother. He is going through the process right now. But she is so sick, can anything be done?

I am unable to make a specific diagnosis based on the information that you provide. I suggest that you consult with the nephrologist who is caring for your sister and come to some understanding of the difficulties she is encountering and see if anything can be done.
