DaVita Patients: 6 Benefits of Nocturnal Dialysis

Living Well on Nocturnal Dialysis

Nocturnal (nighttime) dialysis offers several benefits—from freeing up your days for work, school, family and activities to helping you avoid the "washed out" feeling common with traditional treatment. Could nocturnal dialysis be right for you? See what other DaVita patients say about this treatment option:

1.  Better appetite

"I have an appetite for the first time in so long. I haven't had an appetite in forever." — Jonathan

2.  More energy

"Before, I was tired all the time. Now my family tells me to take it easy. I made 15 pies today." — Anna

3.  Keep working

"I can work after I get up from the chair." — Paola

4.  Gentler treatment

"My sister is a nurse. She did all the research and told me this treatment is better on the heart and people live a longer life." — Jonathan

5.  Feel better

"I'm getting all cleaned out. I feel healthy all around." — Anna

6.  Fewer medicines

"My blood pressure has gone down; it's actually normal now. My doctor was thrilled. He knocked off one dose of my blood pressure medicines." — Jonathan
