How do I make the choice?
The choice between a kidney transplant, dialysis and supportive care depends on factors such as your age, health and lifestyle.
Education is the first step to choosing what type of treatment you will have. Take advantage of the nurses and social workers who offer group and individual education sessions. Use booklets, good quality websites, videos and consider talking to other people in the same position. Your health care team can offer advice on any possible reasons why a particular treatment may not be possible due to current or previous health issue.
