My husband went into kidney failure the day before his 40th birthday in 2008(what a birthday present right) several days later he was told he had wegeners, then good pastures then finally they said IGA. He was in the hospital for almost a week. I brought him home and he was put on dialysis here. After he got stabilized my husband went back to work full time. He was doing so good that we started home dialysis in April 2009. He has to do this 5 times a week after work. until recently it was great. Now every time he does a treatment he feels like crap, drug down. They have tried raising his dry weight and lowering it and he feels the same either way. He can drink all the fluids he wants because he still can go to the bathroom very well.

His dr now has taken him off of dialysis for a 2 week trial because his labs came back saying his clearance was 25% after a 24 hr urine catch. but his creatine was 7.777.
We are very confused can anyone help us with this please?
