Is PD effective after age 80?
It’s not trick question. I have been on HD for 4 months and would like to go to PD so that I can be more mobile. I have been told by surgeon that did my fistula that PD was not effective after age 80 yet on this site and others I see people in their 80’s successfully on PD. I have found nothing on the internet that indicates that PD would not work after age 80.
I am 84 years old and only have one kidney, have high BP and diabetes, both under control and am otherwise healthy and active.
Why not check with different kidney doctor. I live in Surprise AZ and have Southwest Kidney and Davita for my PD and I’m 76.
