Learn about your home dialysis options

When managing your kidney failure diagnosis, it is important to remember that you are the leader of your health care team. Kidney failure, or end-stage renal disease, is the fifth and last stage of kidney disease. Once you are diagnosed with kidney failure, your kidneys have stopped working well enough for you to survive without dialysis or a kidney transplant. 

This guide can help you, your loved ones and doctors make health care decisions together. This will help you learn more about home dialysis and provide you with the information you need to better understand your options and choose the best dialysis treatment for you – all based on the lifestyle factors that are most important to you. You can also use this decision aid if you are already on in-center dialysis and interested in switching to a home treatment and would like to learn more about your options.
