Dialysis at Home

One major advantage of dialyzing at home is that you can dialyse more frequently with comfort and ease. Researches show that hemodialysis, when done more frequently, over longer durations and more gently (at low pump speeds and ultrafiltration rates) is much better for the body overall in terms of both short term and long term outcomes. It becomes little difficult to go to a hospital or center every day of the week for long hours. This is much easier when done at home.

It is extremely important however, to get your doctor's consent before switching to hemodialysis. This modality, though closest to ideal, may not be suited to you. Talk to your nephrologist about this and get his/her consent before you think about switching.
