How is ESKD (kidney failure) treated?

There are only 2 treatment options:

  1. Dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis)
  2. Kidney transplant.

Kidney transplant is a far better option and must be the first choice if possible. Because, the treatment of ESKD is very expensive and available only in urban areas, barely 10% of patients developing ESKD in our country are fortunate to get treatment. Therefore, for a country like ours, efforts should be to prevent kidney disease.
