General travel advice for dialysis patients

You should take with you a recent copy of a chest x-ray and electrocardiogram report, a copy of your most recent laboratory tests, including an HIV test, and the results of a TB skin test. All of your immunizations should be current, including those for hepatitis B and the pneumonia vaccine. Some dialysis units have a policy against using a fax to send information about your HIV status and you may need to send it yourself. Have copies of your current medication list, a complete history and physical examination and your dialysis orders. Although your dialysis unit may send or fax this information, you should carry a copy with you at all times. Wear a medical alert nametag complete with your diagnosis in at least two languages.

Carry double amounts of all the medications that you will need during your trip. Keep one set of medication with you at all times, since luggage may be lost or delayed. Some patients like to take a box of disposable gloves, altough in Italy doctors use only disposable ones. It is also useless to take gauze and tape in case of breakthrough bleeding of your access and some antibacterial soap to clean your access prior to dialysis. A translation book with common phrases may be useful and you should familiarize yourself with terms you may need to get across to the medical staff, such as "I am short of breath," or "it hurts here."

If you are taking electrical equipment, like a cycler, be sure the electric outlets are compatible. When you send CAPD supplies outside the country, they may be held in customs for several days. Hotels may accept deliveries of supplies, but may also charge to hold the supplies until check-in. Take enough supplies with you to make it through several days and lost shipments.

Remember, planning is the key to a successful trip. Give yourself plenty of time to make all the necessary arrangements. Have fun and share your experiences with other dialysis patients.

Introduction to holidays for Kidney Patients

Most people need a break from time to time, and kidney patients are no exception! Holidays are a great way to reinforce the fact that you can still enjoy the good things in life as a kidney patient - and they also provide a welcome break for carers.

Business travel is also a common requirement of many jobs nowadays, and again there is often no reason why kidney patients should not be able to make business trips from time to time - either in the UK, or abroad.

For most patients - whatever therapy they are on - travel and holidays will be actively encouraged by the medical team, who will help with the arrangements. Of course it is essential that you check with your renal unit before planning or booking anything - even if you have had a transplant you will still need a letter from them confirming you are fit to travel in order to secure travel insurance, and advice on immunisation.

Travel for kidney patients on dialysis does require more planning, so last minute bookings are not a realistic option. However, the limitations in terms of where you can take a holiday and what sort of holiday you can take are probably far fewer than you would imagine. There is also plenty of help available to assist with the planning process and to help make sure you have a holiday to remember for all the right reasons.

Please let us assist you
