Peritoneal Dialysis is a good renal replacement modality but currently less than 20% of our patients on dialysis are on this form of dialysis. We should do our utmost to ensure that the patients who choose it get the best experience.
Based on our Singapore Renal Registry, about 7 – 11% of patients initiates on PD. The incidence increases to 13 – 18% at 3 months. The mean age of incident PD patient is 61 years, which indicates a large proportion are elderly. In addition,the patient who chooses PD tends to have more co-morbidity.
