Thanks for your reply, Janice. I'm not even eligible for a transplant because of my age (going to be 67 on March 7), and it's not in the plans right now, because I'm not THAT far advanced. I do have a dietitian, but she isn't even recommending dietary changes right now, because so far, my electrolytes are OK, except low potassium because I'm on a diuretic, because I was retaining so much water. So I'm on a potassium supplement, and low-salt diet, but that's all. Which is good, because I have an eating disorder on top of it. If I progress to the point of needing dialysis, so be it, but I'm trying to find out all I can about it BEFORE anything like that happens. Same with diet, and electrolytes, and all the other things that go along with the territory. I don't know if there are symptoms of electrolyte imbalance, but I know you have to watch phosphorus, potassium, salt, and what else? Vitamins? I know the symptoms of low or high potassium and too much salt, but are there any symptoms when phosphorus gets out of whack? What were your indications of all this starting to happen? Did it progress rapidly? Did you have dialysis, or did you go straight to a transplant? Did you get a pancreas too? I would really like to hear your story!
