At-Home Peritoneal Dialysis
A growing number of doctors and people with chronic kidney disease agree that at-home dialysis—whether it’s peritoneal or hemodialysis—is the best option whenever possible. Why choose at-home?
- At-home dialysis improves your quality of life. You can lead a more normal work and social life.
- With longer or more frequent treatments, people on at-home dialysis usually have fewer food restrictions and take fewer medications.
- At-home dialysis improves outcomes—and may help people live longer.
