    Self dialysis costs dropping

    Besides being healthier, self dialysis is increasing as hospital costs sky rocket.

    • Nevermind the Logistics and cost involved with getting Disabled and other challenged folks to the hospital for the treatments 3x a week. Home dialysis is the future one just needs to be able to make a buck offering it!

        True - but will NXTM be involved as the company currently stands?

        FYI by listening to DaVita's calls and other DD their costs are rising, capacity issues, NXTM could certainly assist with these issues. Don't forget bean counters drive more decisions that medical professionals when it comes right down to it. I believe that medical professionals would choose daily at home over any dialysis center choice assuming that the patient is a candidate.

        Yet DaVita sold their slug of stock. Now some other dialysis heavyweights and formerly dead products are combining. Who knows if they can get approval and then execute atleast as well as NXTM.

        I'm happy and amazed that NXTM stock has been rising.
