My 8 month old daughter started peritoneal dialysis 2 months ago. What does she feel like? What are some basics that her nephrologist should be doing? She has cysts on both of her kidneys. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We do labs every 2 weeks now. She doesn’t urinate anymore. Her medications include – kayexalte, sodium chloride, iron, vitamin d, calcium carb, calcitriol. She also has low muscle tone and a gtube.

I am an adult nephrologist and do not see children.  I have no experience with young infants on peritoneal dialysis.  I suggest that you consult with a pediatric nephrologist for answers to your questions.
