Patient Story: Maria

Being diagnosed with end-stage renal disease came a shock to Maria and her family. Starting on in-center treatments Maria wasn’t able to take part in family events or enjoy the hobbies she loved. Once on more frequent home hemodialysis with System One, Maria’s energy started to come back and the flexibility of her treatments meant she could travel and get back to the activities she loves. Maria has since been successfully transplanted.

Risks and Responsibilities

The reported benefits of home hemodialysis (HHD) may not be experienced by all patients. The NxStage system is a prescription device. All forms of hemodialysis involve some risks.

When vascular access is exposed to more frequent use, infection of the site, and other access related complications may also be potential risks.
