Treatment Options

There are variants of treatment which one can opt for. There are factors which need to be taken into consideration while opting for the option. It depends on the physical condition of the patient, his affordability, his mobility and last but not the least the suggestion of the patient’s treating nephrologist. The option which matches one’s lifestyle is the one which is to be chosen.
