1 Answer

Like chlorine, chloramine can harm kidney dialysis patients during the dialysis process if it is not removed from water before it passes into the bloodstream. The California Department of Health Services inspects and certifies dialysis facilities in the SFPUC service area to assure they are properly prepared for the conversion. For further information, contact your dialysis provider or the Trans Pacific Renal Network (415) 472-8590 or online at www.network17.org Like everyone else, dialysis patients can drink chloraminated water because the digestive process neutralizes chloramine. more
