Home dialysis

Forum Threads Posts Last Post
Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is a type of dialysis that can be done at home, or even at work. Many patients choose CAPD as their first treatment option, while others switch to CAPD after treating in a center. If you have questions about this dialysis option, we have answers. Michelle Cassin, RN and Senior Clinical Director of DaVita Home Dialysis, will respond to your common and not-so-common questions each week. Whether you are a current patient or care partner, or just considering CAPD, submit your health and lifestyle concerns here to start a discussion on the forum. Please note: for time sensitive issues, always contact your care team or on-call nurse directly for the fastest response.
