My husband has been put on folic acid pills about 1 month ago. He is anemic.They have also upped his epo. Some times I think they forget about the vitamins when they do blood tests.

Yup, having ESRD is crazy.  And just when you think you've reached the bottom of the craziness, there's a crazy underground garage.

I am almost 1 yr post and my hemoglobin has never been higher than 10.5.  I have been thrilled to have it that high with no meds to boost it.  After years of numbers no higher than 9 and usually much lower,even with arenesp, iron infusions,etc.   -  I will take 10.5 anyday. 

jbeany is so right.  Everytime you turn around, there is something else to handle, learn about, or deal with.

It certainly can get nerve racking, but then folks like me who wind up anemic, get epogen and iron, then it goes through the roof and can't bring it back down. Fun times.
