If you are living with chronic kidney disease, there are resources to help you learn more about your condition as well as the care and assistance programs available to you. Our office has provided the following external links to help you learn more about kidney disease and dialysis from trusted sources.
Kidney School is a comprehensive online education program for people who want to learn how to manage and live with Stages 3-5 chronic kidney disease. Kidney School is run by the nonprofit Medical Education Institute, Inc. Since it launched in 2002, Kidney School has grown to become one of the largest chronic kidney disease education programs globally. It is recommended by dialysis professionals all across the U.S.

Life Options was founded in 1993 to help people with kidney disease live long and well. A national panel of doctors, researchers, patients, nurses, social workers, dietitians, and ESRD Network directors reviews all Life Options materials and helps guide research.
You can also call for information using their toll-free helpline: 800-468-7777.
Medicare pays for most dialysis in the U.S. And, Medicare rules (since 2008!) require clinics to tell you about ALL of your treatment options—and where to get them. To have the best life you can on dialysis, you need to choose a treatment that will fit you. And, to do that, you need information. Home Dialysis Central is a one-stop-shop for learning about all types of dialysis.
It can be difficult trying to decide which treatment option is right for you. My Life, My Dialysis Choice provides information about dialysis based on what matters to you. This tool can help you make the difficult decision, so you can feel your best while still living the lifestyle you choose.
