• Treatment Evaluator

Take this quick quiz to find out which dialysis treatment may be right for you.

There are multiple treatment options, each with its own health and lifestyle benefits. Remember, even if you are already on dialysis, you may choose to switch treatments if there is another option that better fits you. Take this quick quiz to find out which dialysis treatment may be your ideal match.

Note: Not all patients are eligible for each treatment option. Everyone's medical needs are different. Share your quiz results with your doctor to talk more about the treatment that is right for your specific condition.

I have daytime responsibilities (such as work, school or family) that make it hard for me to go to a dialysis center three times a week for treatment.

Having a flexible diet is important to me.

I want to take fewer medications that treat high blood pressure and other heart-related issues, if possible.

I want to be able to travel without having to go to a dialysis center during my trip.

I would prefer to dialyze at night so that my days are free.

I have someone (a spouse, family member, friend, etc.) who can assist me with my dialysis if I choose to do treatments in the comfort of my own home, instead of in a center.

I am afraid of needles.

I would enjoy having the chance to socialize with other dialysis patients while getting my treatment.

Swimming and/or taking baths are part of my usual routine.

I would prefer to receive dialysis treatment at an outpatient dialysis center.
