Peerstories: Kidney patients
What happens when your kidneys stop working? Your doctor will then discuss with you when dialysis or transplantation is needed, and which treatments are suitable for you. Ultimately, you decide for yourself which treatment you choose.
The KidneyGuide helps you with this. The KidneyGuide contains over 1.000 video’s of people who have already made their choice for a renal replacement treatment. They talk about their experiences with hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, transplantation and conservative care. They talk about the influence of their treatment on (19 aspects of) their daily life.
After visiting the KidneyGuide you will have a more complete picture of what a specific treatment would mean for you, and you can discuss your questions and ideas with your nephrologist and other healthcare professionals.
