Activities and Daily Life

Inspiration to make your everyday life work better despite illness, with the focus on you being in control of your illness, not the other way around.
Read patients' own stories about being on peritoneal dialysis. The stories are peritoneal dialysis patients' narratives about the process, practical tips, joys and sorrows.
We are a group of peritoneal dialysis nurses from home dialysis units in different renal outpatient clinics in Denmark. We work every day with information and education of patients who are about to start peritoneal dialysis, also called PD.
We have gathered information and knowledge about peritoneal dialysis on this website. The information is based on both patients' own and
peritoneal dialysis nurses' knowledge and experience.
Our aim with the website is to provide information about peritoneal dialysis in a way that complements hospitals' own information material.
Our wish is that the website becomes a supplement to making the right choices in relation to dialysis treatment.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your
peritoneal dialysis outpatient clinic.
