I am a Peritoneal Dialysis patient and Lately I have

I am a Peritoneal Dialysis patient and Lately I have been extremely tired. I fall asleep if I sit still for a few minutes. I am on high blood pressure meds and have been on the same regimen for 3 years and never had any problems. I recently was told I had a vitamin D deficiency so I started taking extra vitamin D and getting out in the sun more. The sleepiness is getting worst but only in the daytime. I also have been having boils develop on my inner thigh and pubic area. I took a regimen of antibiotics given by my gyn doctor and the large boil went away, Now I am having smaller ones pop up in the same area, What else can I do, Hot compresses help and they eventually burst but what is causing it?

My father in law is on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. He has lately -- of the past 3 weeks -- suddenly developed symptoms of schizophrenia. Could this be due to changes in his dialysis routine, or any medications he s taking? He s on the usual renal medications, but his other physical parameters checked out normal, including tests for mg, al, etc.

I have weak veins in my arms and the surgeon is trying to connect an artery to a very weak vein. I have a colostomy. Would it be possible for me to have peritoneal dialysis? My kidney doctor says he has never had a patient with both. The surgeon says it would work if necessary.
