Thank you for your recent reply. My wife now on glucernaSR as suggested by you.
Why on many occasions her BP remain low and dialysis cannot be performed. Why her BP remains low and How to ovecome it. Thank you.
I suggest asking her nephrologist about soft drinks as some have potassium and/or sodium in them and some have grapefruit juice which can hinder the absorption of many meds. As far as appetite, offer her things she really likes and in small amounts more often then 3 times a day. When someone without an appetite sees alot of food on a plate, it makes them totally loose their appetite, almost making them feel nauseated. Then there are things like Boost or if she's diabetic, Glucerna. Both make a drink and a pudding. There is a medication called Megace that often stimulates appetite if nothing else works.
