Some dialysis administrators and nurses do not encourage their patients to socialize with other patients while visiting the clinic to receive dialysis treatments. Some even go as far as to purposely keep patients isolated from each other.
.Most dialysis patients have to visit these clinics 3 days a week for about 3 to 4 hours per visit. There are some dialysis patients that admit to experiencing feelings of loneliness and .boredom during these visits..
Patients who do have positive interactions with other patients say they seem to have improved social, emotional and physical health.

Let's talk about it!
The annual Kidney Cancer Symposium was held this year in Miami, Florida. It was chaired by Dr. Toni Choueiri of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute in Boston, and contained a wealth of information for physicians, both urologists and oncologists dealing with kidney cancer.
This year for the first time in many years more patients and patient advocates were included in the mix. In the past Joyce has been one of 4-5 patients invited to help report the meeting, under the general editorship of Mike Lawing. This year, in part to celebrate the 25th anniversary oCaleb f the founding of KCA by a kidney cancer patient, more patients were invited to attend, including two from outside the United States: Caleb from Nigeria and Juanita Ruiz from Peru.
Billy Foster, a long-time KCA supporter and jazz musician, was on hand to provide wonderful music for the reception. He has given us permission to broadcast an interview he recorded with Caleb Egwuenu, founder and president of Stand Up to Cancer Naija, http://www.su2c9ja.org In Nigeria many people still believe that cancer is "juju" or some harmful magical power inflicted by someone else, or as a result of something you did wrong. The biggest challenge to managing any cancer is that diagnoses are usually after the cancer is already advanced to a late stage. For Nigeria as for most developing countries, the management of late stage cancer is beyond the skills and budgets of the health care systems. Their only hope of managing cancer is to find it at early stages.

Are you a therapist, nurse or other Health Care Professional feeling overworked and underappreciated?
Do you sometimes have difficulty setting boundaries with patients or their families?
Are you frustrated by patients who cannot or will not follow through with recommendations?
If you answered "yes" to the above questions, you will want to join me and my guest, Clinical Pscyhologist, Dr. Angelo Domingo.
Over the course of his clinical career, Dr. Domingo has gained an awareness for the ways in which mental and physical illness, and environmental stressors combine to impact an entire family. Individualized treatment plans may include: stress management, psycho-education, relaxation, meditation, and traditional talk therapy based on each patient or family's individual needs.
With an active psychology practice at Parkinson Place, in Sarasota, Florida, Dr. Domingo has also developed a skill for helping other health care professionals set healthy boundaries with patients and families. When memory problems or dementia impact a patient's participation in treatment, he can help therapists develop behavior modification strategies which may improve patient adherence.
Face it, we wouldn’t be working in health care if we didn’t care about people, but, sometimes,we need a little self-care.
So, grab your lunch, and join the discussion.

Looking over the last several shows, the base theme is chronic inflammation....Sooo, this week I decided to replay My interview with Linda Elsegood concerning LDN or Low Dose Naltrexone that being sucessfully utilized to treat numerous chronic illnesses. Linda Elsegood is a leader in the movement to educate patients and doctors about LDN. Her tireless effort is bringing healing to many.
Linda Elsegood was diagnosed with MS in 2000 at the age of 44. She started LDN 3rd Deb 2003 and founded the LDN Research Trust in Feb 2004 to tell other people find out about LDN and to find prescribing doctors and to help and support clinical trials of LDN. She has organised several LDN conferences, the next being in 2016 in Orlando. She has offered our listners a discount on the conference and live streaming! $30 off a 3 day ticket using the code conf30, $15 off the live stream using the code live15
Her ultimate goal is for everyone with an autoimmune disease to be given LDN as a first line treatment and in the UK to have it on the NHS. LDN isn't a cure and doesn't work for everyone but it is something well worth researching!
This information is worth re-visiting....tell your friends!!!
