Treatment Modality

How to Choose the Right Treatment?

When it comes to treating end stage renal disease (ESRD), one treatment does not fit all. You can choose from several types of treatment options to find the one that best suits your health and lifestyle need; with your physician’s guidance.

You can always speak with your doctor about changing treatment modality as the treatment that’s right for you right now may not be tomorrow. Here are a few considerations to help inform your decision.

  • Do you currently have daytime obligations such as work or school?
  • Do you want more control of your schedule and time?
  • Do you want to do your treatments at home or in a center?
  • Do you have someone available to help you with treatments at home?
  • Do you want to consider performing your own dialysis treatments?
