Peritoneal dialysis and our PD belts

When you find out that you have to start dialysis, there are a lot of thoughts running through your mind. One of the big ones is what type of dialysis. There are actually two different treatments of dialysis and your doctor will decide which is going to be the best course of action for you and your treatment.

At Hemowear, we understand this time of your life is a stressful one. We want you to be as comfortable as possible when you start undergoing your dialysis treatments. We make access clothing specifically designed for this type of treatment to make it easy for the doctors to access the parts of the arms, legs, and abdomen that the care team might need.

In this blog we are going to discuss the two types of dialysis treatments and why they are different. Also, which of Hemowear’s clothing is going to be suited for you to wear to your treatment.

Peritoneal Dialysis

This type of treatment uses the lining of the abdomen. A cleaning solution, dialysate, is then filtered into the body to clean your blood. The dialysate is designed to rid you of the waste and fluid from your blood, using the lining of your abdomen as a filter. This type of dialysis leaves you to have more freedom because it can be performed at home, in a clean environment.

Our PD belts are exactly what you need to keep you comfortable and prepared for this type of dialysis. This PD belt will protect you from infection and let you have easy access to your catheter and make your PD treatment a smooth going process. Always remember you can get all comfy dialysis clothing right here at Hemowear!
