I'm heading out on Sunday to Hawaii and I've already talked to the DH about our need to cook/eat in our room most of the time rather than jumping into all the different restaurants. I've loaded several apps on my iPhone to help me pick the best menu choice when we do eat out.

Top 5 Summer Travel Tips for Kidney Patients

Youíve already broken out the shorts and t-shirts and cleaned your bbq grill. Summerís around the corner and even if you have kidney disease, you can take the road trip or exotic vacation you dreamed about all winter. With a little advance planning, you can buy those plane tickets or rent the RV. Here are the top 5 summer travel tips from the National Kidney Foundation.
Consult your doctor to determine whether your health is stable enough to withstand a trip and discuss your plans in detail, including destination, recreational activities, sports.

If you do in-center hemodialysis, talk to your social worker or nurse about making arrangements to do dialysis in the city to which youíll be traveling. Planning 6-8 weeks in advance is necessary in order to secure an appointment for treatment. If youíre traveling to a popular vacation detination or during the holidays, give yourself even more time as guest spots in the dialysis units may be limited.

Put any essential medical information, your medication and supplies in your carry-on bags in case your luggage gets lost.

Bring enough medication to last for your entire trip as well as some extra for possible emergencies. Carry a written prescription in case you lose the medication and need more while youíre away from home.

If youíre traveling by plane or train, arrange for special meals such as low-salt, low-fat or diabetic, at the time that you make your reservation. Donít wait until youíre on the aircraft or rail because at that time, airline personnel may not be able to accommodate your needs.
