Page 17

Holidays cartoon

Unless your child is having complications, a normal family holiday should be possible.

A copy of your latest clinic letter should accompany you and also an adequate supply of prednisolone in case of relapse.

Remember the need for extra sun protection when taking specific medications.

Always ensure adequate hydration and movement if undertaking a long haul flight.

Tell your doctor / renal nurse about your plans.
