Welcome to the non-profit Medical Education Institute's Home Dialysis Central blogspot!
This page is an umbrella under which Home Dialysis Central staff and guests can share
their perspectives about home therapies and what we need to do to raise their profile
and enable more people to use them. We'd like your comments as well!
Bookmark our site and like us on Facebook! Help us tell the world about home dialysis.
We have a "lifestyle bible" for sale that can help you learn about dialysis options.
Help, I Need Dialysis!
We also have prepared some
slideshows on how to have a good future with kidney disease.
