We have developed this website with the true and original spirit of the internet in mind - the sharing of information and the desire to educate and inform. It is designed to give a broad understanding of some of the issues surrounding this haemodialysis modality. It does not seek nor intend to replace direct and detailed discussion with a doctor. If you have a question about your condition or treatment, or if you think that nocturnal haemodialysis may be a possible option for you after reading these pages, please consult your renal unit or doctor. Only your doctor is  able to determine if this therapy would fit your individual circumstances.
