Excellent points...PD and Hemodialysis should be complementary, but too many people aren't fully informed of the availability and viability of PD.
As an ESRD patient that has transitioned from PD to HEMO, I wish an AKSYS like solution were available to me today. The "clinic-dialysis-at-home" currently available is not as attractive to me. So in the short term I'm in the clinic 3 times a week. In the long run, I'm a transplant candidate. If my transplant fails, then I hope to have something like AKSYS available to maintain my life and lifestyle.
