What should I know about Dianeal Low Calcium before taking it?

Before taking Dianeal Low Calcium, you will need to have a catheter inserted into your abdomen. A catheter is a long, flexible tube inserted in the body cavity to drain fluids. After the surgery to insert the catheter and before starting the Dianeal Low Calcium, you will need to wait two weeks to give your body time to heal. Once the area around the catheter is healed, you can begin the peritoneal dialysis. Tell your doctor your complete medical history, including any allergies you have, or prescription or nonprescription medicine and herbal or dietary supplements that you are taking. Dianeal Low Calcium is a prescription medication. Dosage depends on your age, weight, and medical condition.
This medication is only intended for use in dialysis and will not treat lactic acidosis. If you are administering this drug from home, make sure you follow your doctor's instructions exactly and keep all scheduled appointments. Failure to administer dialysis properly can result in complications ranging from infection,  fluid imbalances to high or low blood pressure to muscle cramps. People with a heart condition, imbalanced electrolyte levels, or diabetes should be extremely cautious while using Dianeal Low Calcium.
