If you have chronic kidney disease and reach stage 5, otherwise known as end-stage renal disease, you will need regular dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant to survive.
Information is key. If you and your doctor decide that dialysis is the best treatment option for you at this time, it’s important to learn more about your options. Find out how dialysis works, whether in-center dialysis or home dialysis is best for you and whether or not you’ll be able to travel while on dialysis (hint: you can!).
Do your research, know your options and become empowered, so you can feel good and live well while on dialysis.
