Peritoneal Home Dialysis for Patients
When you need dialysis, you’re required to visit a center multiple times a week to perform the treatment. However, this requirement can create a significant inconvenience in your life. You have to find time in your schedule and interrupt your daily routine to visit a center that is likely miles from your home. Northeast Nephrology Consultants, Inc offers an alternative solution to in-center dialysis with peritoneal home dialysis. This option allows you to complete your dialysis treatment in the comfort of your own home or even as you travel. You won’t be restricted by your dialysis schedule any longer. Reach out to us today for additional information.
What Is Peritoneal Home Dialysis?
Peritoneal home dialysis is an option for treating end stage renal disease (ESRD) that most closely resembles your natural kidney function. This convenient dialysis option provides the treatment you need and can be completed at home, work, or on vacation. Northeast Nephrology Consultants, Inc offers this treatment to our patients through our partnership with Channahon Home Dialysis. Following an evaluation, you will be referred to their facilities if you are a good candidate for peritoneal home dialysis.
Benefits of Peritoneal Home Dialysis
With in-center dialysis, you’re tied to a strict schedule to ensure you get the treatment you need when you need it. Though this is a necessary part of life for patients with ESRD, it can make it difficult to schedule or plan other parts of your life. Peritoneal home dialysis allows more flexibility in your dialysis schedule, making it possible to complete your treatment at home or while traveling. In addition to flexibility and convenience, home dialysis offers many other benefits, including:
- Fewer negative side effects, like nausea, vomiting, cramping, and weight gain
- Fewer dietary restrictions
- Needle free treatments
- Continuous therapy, which best replicates natural kidney function
- Direct shipment of supplies to your home or vacation destination
- No travel to a dialysis center multiple times a week for treatment
- Option to complete treatment while sleeping
- Travel plans and vacations
