Win-Win: A Home Dialysis Story
I’m Christopher Springmann and this is NephTalk, a podcast series created with Nephrologists in mind, from Satellite Healthcare, a not-for-profit dialysis provider and clinical researcher, with a special focus on home, as the industry's home dialysis leader. Nieltje Gedney: And I would have chosen to die, except that I was taking care of my mother, and the second was the fact that the nephrologist in the hospital who saw me on an emergency basis told me about home dialysis. And in all the years that I had been struggling against CKD, kidney disease, no one ever mentioned that option. Those two things really saved my life. That’s our guest Nieltje Gedney, a home hemodialysis patient and hero to many with kidney disease, as an outspoken officer of Home Dialyzors United, an advocacy group committed to promoting innovative, accessible and often individualized patient-centered dialysis treatments at home.
