I can't have a transplant, can I do dialysis for the rest of my life?

Yes, dialysis is something you can do for the rest of your life. Some people have been on dialysis for 30 years or more without getting a transplant.

How long you can live on dialysis, and how well you do, will depend on a number of things, including how healthy you are, your attitude, your quality of healthcare and how much you take an active role in your care.

Most people on dialysis enjoy a good quality of life for many years.
