How many people today use home hemodialysis?
The 2010 United States Renal Data System (USRDS) report showed that 0.51% of incident dialysis patients were undergoing HHD. Based on the 2015 USRDS report, the use of HHD by incident ESKD patients increased by 222% from 2007 to 2013. Even with the large relative rise in HHD, its overall utilization as a home dialysis modality is significantly lower than that of peritoneal dialysis (PD). Home dialysis, either HHD or PD, was utilized by 9.1% of all patients undergoing dialysis as of 2013.
