Appointments can be overwhelming. It is good to take someone who cares about you with you to help you remember and ask questions. It is sometimes hard not to feel rushed at an appointment, but remember the care provider is there for you and you ask any question you need to and keep asking until you are satisfied.
In your kidney or other health binder, you can just use plain loose leaf paper for your notes, but if it helps, I created a worksheet to print out and take to each appointment in your binder. It contains the basics at the top... date, weight, blood pressure, careprovider's name. Then there is a place for notes and at the bottom are some questions that I try to remember at each visit to ask. There is also space to put questions you want to ask at the appointment.
Did you think of something I forgot to add? Let me know and I will continue to post updated worksheets as I come up with and you provide ways to improve it!
