Home dialysis has proved to improve better blood pressure management which means less need for blood pressure medications, avoidance of intradialytic hypotension (e.g. low blood pressure during dialysis), more energy and feeling less washed-out after treatment. It shows decreased prevalence of sleep apnoea or improvement in severe cases of sleep apnoea, and there are less dietary and fluid restrictions.
