What is Home Hemodialysis (HHD)?

Home Hemodialysis (HHD) offers patients the option of conducting hemodialysis at home with the help of a care partner or attendant. Finding a treatment that fits your lifestyle is essential to maintaining your quality of life. Performing hemodialysis at home helps many people do just that. Home hemodialysis (HHD) gives you the freedom to do treatments outside of the dialysis center.

What are the benefits of Home Hemodialysis (HHD)?

Home Hemodialysis (HHD) patients can take control of their treatment schedules, leaving more time for themselves, their families, their jobs and other activities. Compared to in-center hemodialysis, HHD benefits may include :

  • Perform dialysis in the comfort and privacy of your own home
  • Lesser commute to the dialysis center, saving time and energy
  • Lesser risk of infection due to fewer trips to the hospital; avoid any chance of cross infection
  • Better compliance resulting in improved outcomes
  • Flexibility in frequency and duration of dialysis; choose flexible treatment times around your work and family schedule
  • More energy and improved sleep quality
  • More opportunity to pursue work and life goals
  • Psychological benefits of being at home including fewer symptoms of depression

People on HHD have the option to dialyze more frequently with short treatments generally performed on different days five to six times a week, for two to three hours per session. Because of the treatment frequency, people on HHD tend to experience improved health benefits, such as reduced fatigue and nausea, and better regulation of blood pressure and toxin build-up.

How do you decide that Home Hemodialysis is right for you?

When you have end stage renal disease (ESRD), you and your nephrologist will discuss which treatment options best fit your lifestyle. Ask your doctor about HHD. You may prefer this type of treatment because:/p>

  • You can dialyze in the comfort of your own home
  • You can dialyze for shorter treatment times if you do short daily HHD
  • Dialyzing at home allows you to maintain an active lifestyle, at work, at school or in your travels
  • You’ll save time by not traveling to a dialysis center three day a week

Many people that start in-center hemodialysis transition to a home dialysis therapy. You will have more freedom and flexibility - you’re one phone call away from a highly trained home dialysis clinical team that’s dedicated to delivering superior care and making your experience as comfortable as possible.

Please consult your nephrologist while evaluating and deciding on treatment options.
