Welcome to the patient area of the Fresenius Medical Care website!
Here we would like you, you as an individual, to find useful information and tips on all relevant aspects of kidney disease. Other patients in the same or similar situation to yours will share their personal experiences with you and provide insights into their individual approach to therapy!

A typical patient pathway describes the journey from getting diagnosed to learning the necessary treatment steps and eventually starting therapy.
Choosing the right option plays a very important role in many patients lives. It helps to look at the therapy as a task to fulfill your life. Understand your treatment as a source of strength, energy and zest for life so that you can enjoy life despite having kidney disease.
Don't worry! You don't have to travel this path alone. Your medical team is at your side every step of the way.
Kidney replacement therapy decision aid tool for patients
A decision aid tool might support you and your family to compare different treatment options based on your lifestyle needs and have more meaningful discussions with healthcare professionals. While the decision aid tool provides valuable information to patients and their families, it is important to note that it does not replace the advice and support of healthcare professionals.
The information provided on the Fresenius Medical Care website cannot replace talking to your physician. The final decision for a renal replacement therapy needs to be made with your medical team.
