    • I am a nxstage patient and it is great. One I can do it at my convience and not that of a center. Two) I dont have the copays that are associated with center treatments. Three) You have more treatments at home which is a lot better than the three you have at the center. It keeps your body more stable. Four) Right now 50,000 people a year need transplants and 15000 people a year get one. In the year 2010 a 100000 people a year will need one. Most centers already run 24/7 so there is not even close to being the amount of centers needed to treat people. Also at the last nxstage meeting for patients they stated that they are working on making there machines more portable than they are now. Nxstage is the future of dialysis care. I have been doing it for two years and I would never go back to a center where it is so depressing.
