Mum recently had complete Kidney failure so now has a tiring, 3 times a week, long trip up to the hospital for dialysis and back. We were told it was the dialysis itself tiring her out, (not forgetting the long journey,) and it would get better, but not so (yet.)
A dialysis machine takes your blood out, cleans it, removes toxins, then puts it back in. (correct me if I've said it incorrectly.)
Now I am worried her 'Brain Fog' and tiredness all day long is due to her Hypothyroidism instead as it has been going on too long. She just can't think properly, she is certainly 'not' depressed' but is very lethargic. Her Doctor, not long ago before the Kidney failure, upped her Levothyroxine as she had similar symptoms. (I asked for her Thyroid to be checked, due to her symptoms.)
We need to know if the dialysis machine is not only cleaning her bloods, but is also cleaning away her Levothyroxine medication too. She is also a Diabetic on daily insulin too, so another worry there.
I have been told they take bloods checks monthly, so hopefully this will show up soon.
Any thoughts Please ?
