    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    During Dialysis, can different blood types be given? If someone is A Pos, can B Neg and O Pos be given? Whether transfusion or plasma? Desperate need to know--family member was in crisis and liver failed, nurse friend said look at dialysis records for possible clue. Same day different blood transfused or whatever the term used, family member went into crisis and went into liver failure, with dr saying it was her condition that did it. But patient recovered and liver count went to normal--they gave albumin, too, and some other IVs. Please help with answers, thank you!

    This is not my area of expertise. Please speak with your family member's doctor.

    I agree --the family member's doctor needs to be consulted. Our Kidney Disorders Community can help as well.
