A typical patient pathway describes the journey from getting diagnosed, through gaining and understanding of management options and eventually starting therapy. Your individual preference for a therapy option may change as you continue in your journey and your circumstances change. You always have choice through shared decision making with your healthcare professional team.
Choosing the right therapy option plays a very important role for you. It helps to look at the therapy as a task to fulfil 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 healthcare team is at your side every step of the way.
