It’s not unusual for patients with declining kidney health to retain residual renal function, sometimes at substantial levels. Preserving that kidney function has many benefits for patients, including better survival and recognizing that the patient may not need a  full dose of dialysis. Use of incremental peritoneal dialysis by using a limited number of exchanges has been an accepted approach; what about incremental hemodialysis?

  • while i was given the option of hemodialysis vs PD, my Doctor had suggested to go for PD for this exact reason. She mentioned that hemo destroys residual kidney function while PD does not.
