Need more info

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

In our dialysis set up it is not customary to get dialysed. As long as you understand the consequences and give an informed consent signed, one can decide to stop dialysis treatment.

I would like to know more about:

1. The country you are from
2. How did you reach ESRD. For example, diabetes, hypertension, etc
3. How many times you are getting dialysed
4. Reason to stop dialysis

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply
