If you are reading this message, you may be facing a need for dialysis. This is not news anyone wants to hear–but you DO have options, and the type of dialysis you choose can impact every aspect of your life.

This is why we built a tool to help you. My Life, My Dialysis Choice ( lets you choose from up to 23 lifestyle and health values. For each value you choose, you will see how four types of dialysis will affect it. Rate each type of dialysis with stars, and you will get a summary chart at the end. Then, you can talk to your nephrologist about which options will make your life work best while you wait for a transplant, or if you can’t have one or don’t want one.
