My daughter suffered an ecoli infection in March that has caused kidney failure. She went 7 weeks without peeing a drop, then miraculously she started urinating. Unfortunately she wasn't clearing the creatinine and BUN was high (upper 80's) so she stayed on hemodialysis. Because she has Down Syndrome and Autism, doctor wanted to get her off hemo and on to PD as soon as possible. My daughter decided to expedite pd by pulling her hemo cath out!!!!
She has now been on pd for almost a month and we just got her first labs back. creatinine 6.6 and BUN 160. Has anyone heard of PD not working? Has this happened to anyone while body adjusts to PD. I have also noticed significant muscle weakness over the past few weeks.
