Home dialysis offers unparalleled advantages for many kidney patients. Yet, living with home dialysis can make a family feel like they’re living in an Intensive Care Unit! It’s easy to get discouraged or overwhelmed. We (Linda, the doctor, and Jane, the designer) are here to help you set up your home dialysis unit so that your life is as comfortable and as convenient as it can be.

Hi my name is Dr. Linda Gromko and I am a Seattle family practice physician who assisted my husband Steve Williams with both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis for three-and-a-half years before his death in April 2011. In coordination with interior designer Jane C. McClure, I wrote Arranging Your Life When Dialysis Comes Home: “The Underwear Factor’ and two other books about my family’s experience with ESRD.

Hello DPC Family! I hope this message finds you all well.

Although temperatures are getting warmer I can think of one place that always seems to be a bit chilly. If you have ever been on hemodialysis then you know exactly what I mean. Yes, I am talking about the dialysis center.

There are many reasons why chronic kidney disease patients may feel cold after dialysis. It could be sitting under the air vent for hours, not enough clothing or one’s physical or medical condition.
