Peritoneal Dialysis (PD)
Peritoneal Dialysis, or PD, is a different kind of dialysis. It's performed in the comfort and convenience of your own home—without needles. You can even take PD with you, to work, in an RV or to a hotel. This may give you more time to enjoy your favorite things like traveling, school, work, hobbies, sports, visiting with friends and a full family life. It's important to note that everyone is different and like all forms of dialysis, PD is not without risks that need to be considered before beginning this type of treatment. Only your doctor can help you decide what therapy may be right for you.
