What Happens When You Skip A Dialysis
Kidney: Usually one kidney can compensate for the loss of the other, granted it is in good condition. You don't mention why the one kidney is lost in the first place? Is it from disease or donation? The answer will vary accordingly. ...Read more
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
Bad things: If you miss your dialysis appointment, a whole slew of bad things can happen. As dialysis helps in maintaining the proper equilibrium of acids/bases, salts etc in your blood, missing your appointment can lead to an imbalance in your blood. This may lead to fainting, weakness, heart complications, and death! essentially, wherever blood may flow, problems can emerge from those organs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dialysis cessation: There are two reasons why a patient would stop dialysis. The first is that the person had acute renal failure and recovered his renal function, ending his need for dialysis. If the person has end-stage-renal-disease and he stops dialysis, he will get progressivly weaker, may have nausea and vomiting and die of fluid overload or hyperkalemia. The time to death is variable. ...Read more
Surgical cutting: A fiberotomy or pericision is an orthodontic surgical procedure designed to cut/modify the gingival fibers around a tooth.

I would like to know what would cause you to have your heart feel like its skipping a beat after eating? It doesn't happen after every meal. Once in a
Interesting question: Generally speaking, foods don't cause arrhythmias unless you're eating foods with caffeine (cocoa, cola, coffee etc). Why not get a 24 hour recorder (holter monitor) from your doctor, eat and try to reproduce your symptoms, carefully recording what you ate, exactly when, and what you felt.

Stop diltiazem: Not a good idea, you should discuss stopping any med with your physician so that she, or he, can explain the risks and benefits of doing this. Some meds need to be weaned off and should not be stopped abruptly. ...Read more
Easy Rx: The key is that you got diagnosed, hopefully early. 1 person in 200 will be symptomatic with this. I'm going to assume the diagnosis is correct & it's common hemochromatosis. You'll have a pint of blood drained maybe 2x/week until you feel better / labs turn good. The blahs, thumb pain, lackluster love life, and whatever else will improve.
