Hi, I am a HHD patient and have to administer my own EPO and Iron which is a treatment generally used to prevent anaemia in renal patients. I was wondering how PD patients administer this treatment to themselves? Do PD patients inject themselves with EPO and Iron? Or do they go into the unit to receive this medication? Also HHD patients have to take blood from their arterial access line once a month so that their blood results can be assessed, how do PD patients do this? I would be very interested to know from any PD patients as to what they do in respect of the above issues.
