I am dismayed that dialyzors in the path of Irene have not been directed to use their emergency diet over this weekend.
It is being widely reported that power outages should be expected and that some outages will be prolonged. When exactly are the renal networks and dialysis providers planning to direct thier patients to strictly limit fluid and potassium? On Monday after they arrive at their unit to find the power is out?
Right now you need to start following an emergency diet if you think there is a chance your dialysis unit will be closed Monday or Tuesday.
