Managing Kidney Disease
Hi! I’m Mary, a Dialysis Nurse at Fresenius Kidney Care
Here are some essential facts to understand about chronic kidney disease (CKD):
Meet Your CKD Treatment Team
Your treatment team is the dedicated group of healthcare providers, specialists, counselors and family and friends who are there for you throughout your chronic kidney disease (CKD) treatment. Living—and thriving—with CKD takes support, so reach out to your team whenever you need them.
Potential team members who will support you
You’ll have different people on your treatment team depending on your CKD stage and the treatment you choose. You can learn more about specific treatment teams here: in-center hemodialysis team, at-home peritoneal dialysis treatment team and at-home hemodialysis treatment team. If you choose another option like transplant or supportive care without dialysis, your team structure may look different, but support will be just as important.
