Nice topic. N&V is common in dialysis patients. Mary explained the reason, the cause of it, she also explained other problems that gut may cause, like depression! Thanks for the nice presentation.

I enjoyed the presentation so much I asked my PCP if I should take Probiotics and he presented me with another article www.theguardian.com/science/2018/sep/06/probiotics-not-as-beneficial-for-gut-health-as-previously-thought The Microbiome most definitely needs more research
