The Patient's Voice

Welcome to DPC's blog where you have the ability to share your thoughts and interact with others from the kidney community and beyond. It is a place of genuine connection as well as advocacy and support. Your voice and your stories are more powerful than any statistic or study.

Hi, my name is Jessica and I am the Director of Public Affairs for Dialysis Patient Citizens. That means I create and coordinate the communications that come out of the DPC office, including the Patient Citizen that is on its way to your mailbox. I also work with our policy team on federal initiatives that impact dialysis patients, including changes to Medicare, the “bundle” and QIP and efforts to make sure all of you can take advantage of new policies put in place through health reform.

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.
