University scientists have published data from a landmark study that explains why survival in patients on peritoneal dialysis is low.
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a treatment for over 250,000 patients with chronic kidney disease worldwide, using the patient’s peritoneum in the abdomen. Currently, only one in ten PD patients survives beyond 10 years on dialysis. For each one-year increase in the patient’s age, the risk of death increases by 4% and patients with diabetes have a 30% increased risk of death.
