Conservative Care or Conservative Management (CM) of Kidney Failure
Deciding not to have
Frail people with other serious medical problems, and perhaps elderly, might not do well on dialysis. This means that starting dialysis can bring the quality of life down and sometimes even shorten life, due to the stress doing dialysis can put upon the frail person.
For whatever reason, you
might feel that dialysis is too much to put up with. We
can still continue to treat you if you do not want to
have dialysis. We will help your kidneys last as
long as possible, and we will treat any symptoms of
renal failure. You can get much more good
information about what Conservative Management means
from the information below:
