Being on dialysis and having kidney disease does not mean that you have to cut travel out of your life.

There are dialysis centres all around the world.

You can search http://www.globaldialysis.com/search-for-dialysis-centres.html to find out if there is a dialysis centre close to your vacation destination. These global dialysis centres not only make traveling possible, but also provides a sense of freedom and can help improve your well-being and lifestyle. If you are on peritoneal dialysis, discuss with your healthcare team how you can receive your supplies while away. You will need to take extra time to plan in advance in order to arrange for dialysis while you are traveling. You can ask your social worker or nurse to assist in the organization and planning of your trip, for example, going on a cruise (visit www.dialysisatsea.com).
