Hi jeananne,

I managed to remember the name of that test that tells you how well your kidneys are doing with dialysis; it's called a "PET" (Peritoneal Equilibration Test). You have blood tests, your dialysis bags are saved, weighed and tested, as is your urine saved over a 24 hour period for weighing and testing. They can tell by all these things what your kidneys are doing.

Monash hospital is at Clayton, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Good luck jeananne
