Peritoneal Dialysis and Hemodialysis: Which One Is Better

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2017-05-29 11:33

Peritoneal Dialysis and Hemodialysis: Which One Is Better,Kidney FailureAs for patients who are facing Dialysis, they may be confused to choose which dialysis method: Peritoneal Dialysis or Hemodialysis. Which one is better?

Free ONLINE DOCTOR can help you get what you need.

Personally, it depends on three aspects: life, time and money.


This is the most important point for Kidney Disease patients. They choose Dialysis is to save life and live longer life. So you can choose the one that live longer.

Hemodialysis is to create an artificial kidney out of the body that replaces the original kidney in the body. In short time, it is better than peritoneal dialysis to eliminate the toxins and wastes. However, the artificial kidney makes the original kidney lose the residual kidney function.

Peritoneal dialysis, as its name implies, is to take use of the peritoneum of the body dialysis. It can be done at any time and the wastes in the blood can be eliminated constantly. In this way, blood biochemical index is relatively stable and the residual kidney function also can be protected well.

However, both will cause infection and inflammation and other health problems.


Hemodialysis: In general, it is done three times a week, each time 4 to 5 hours. Therefore, it greatly affects the patient’s daily work and life.

Peritoneal dialysis: Patients need to change the dialyzate three or four times per day, each time half an hour. It is consistent with the mealtime to some extent, so patients who doing peritoneal dialysis can work normally.


No matter what kind of dialysis, it is a long-term process that spending money is inevitable.

In a word, in the long term, peritoneal dialysis is cheaper.


1. In order to improve the life quality, if condition permits, the patient can do blood perfusion or blood plasma and other special blood dialysis.

2. If peritoneum functions are declined after several years, the patient can change to hemadialysis.

Thus for patients in early stage of CKD, you had better take effective as soon as possible to avoid Kidney Failure and Dialysis even Kidney Transplant.
