Embracing Independence with Kidney Disease

A Candid Look Behind the Scenes During Home Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Treatments featuring Rachel Cluthe and Kristin Rice.

Watch as Rachel Cluthe of Houston, TX, along with her husband and two daughters demonstrate a home-hemodialysis treatment from start to finish. “I’ve been doing home hemodialysis for four years now. It offers a sense of freedom and independence. Instead of visiting a clinic several times a week, I have the ability to manage my dialysis treatment on my own terms. Setting up the dialysis machine, connecting the needles, and monitoring the process have become familiar routines. It’s empowering to have the knowledge and skills to handle my treatment with confidence.” Says Rachel.

And watch as Kristin Rice of Baltimore, MD, demonstrates a peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment from start to finish. Kristin says, “Before I started on peritoneal dialysis (PD) I was terrified of it and did everything I could to avoid it.  Now that I’ve been doing it for a year, I’ve come to realize that it’s really not that bad. Once I figured out how much time I needed to add to my morning and evening routines, PD fit into my schedule pretty seamlessly. I’m able to work full time, spend time with friends and family and I’ve even done some local travel.”
