Patient Story: Tina

When Tina was diagnosed with kidney disease at the age of 15, she went from being a normal teenager to being a patient. She’s been living with dialysis treatments her entire adult life. After getting married in 2007, she discovered home hemodialysis. Within a very short time, Tina had her energy and appetite back and felt so good she even went skydiving. Today she does nocturnal home hemodialysis and she no longer feels like she’s the patient. She’s a mother and a wife, and dialysis is just something she does.
