Title: Which HD machine to choose
Post by: cassandra on November 19, 2020, 06:48:09 AM
Hi all I hope you find yourselves as well as can be. I just hope someone can help me.


As I suffer now pretty badly from D related Amyloidosis, my neph wants me on a different machine. Either Gambro 98 or Quanta. I understand the Gambro needs an RO machine, does anyone know if a Quanta sc does too?
Does a lot needs to change in the house concerning water supplies etc in comparison with the Nxstage?


Thanx already,


love, Cas

Will you be getting a Lixelle column with your new setup?

Lixelle would seem to be the main reason for switching from NxStage to a machine that uses conventional filters.  It's worth asking your doc and would answer the obvious question "why?".
