Daily treatments more closely approximate the work of the kidneys. Remember that healthy kidneys work 24/7 - not just three sessions per week! You will have far more flexibility in scheduling, greater freedom in eating, and more time to spend with people you care about. Plus, nobody cares about the quality of your dialysis, infection control, or the care of your access (e.g., fistula) like you do! LGromkoMD

I've had polymyalgia for 1 year..Am on pednisone 5 mg daily. What would happen if I stopped taking the meds?

Depends: If you are on Prednisone you should not just stop it. You need to work with your doctor on managing your dose. It needs to be decreased slowly based on your clinical symptoms and response to dose reduction. You should talk to your doctor before changing your dosage.

Can you be a problem gambler if you don't gamble every day of the week?

Dr. Jeff Blixt
Addiction Medicine 24 years experience
Yes: It's not necessarily how often the behavior occurs, it's what happens when it does. Is the behavior having negative consequences to the gambler or their loved ones? This would be an indication there is a problem.
