    Hi Kim, I am a dialysis nurse. You should be taking a renal vitamin such as renal cap which is full of b vitamins and folate. You should be taking your vitamins after dialysis so you don't dialize them off and you should be fine.

      Sorry you feel that way about your medical professionals. You shouldn't have to feel this way, they should be helping you more. Yes , you should take in the am then. PD not as bad as hemp in dialyzing off vitamins, but nonetheless, taking them after is always better. Hope you start to feel better soon. If there is anything else I can help with, I am here.😄
