Once it has been discussed by your doctor that your kidney function is deteriorating, options will be discussed with you about having a treatment called dialysis.
There are currently four options available as treatment:
- Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD)
- Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)
- Haemodialysis (HD)
- Hemodiafiltration (HDF)
Each option will be discussed with you in detail with your doctor and a pre-dialysis specialist, and they will decide on the best course of treatment for you. For more information, click on each of the options above.
