Kidney treatment offers patients mobility

July 19, 2012

 POCATELLO — Peritoneal Dialysis (PD), also called home dialysis, gives mobility to patients with End-Stage Renal Disease. The patients are taught how to treat themselves at home, at work and even while traveling.
As Brooks Barthlome explained, “I am hooked up to the home dialysis machine nine to 12 hours each night.”
“It’s a little inconvenient since the machine and all the supplies takes up about half the trunk space when we are traveling,” said his wife, Andrea, “but we are able to travel.”  
Brooks Barthlome, from Grace, has suffered from kidney disease since he was an infant.
