Phanidhar Mogga, Riya Unny, Maithrayie Kumaresan, Arun Kumar N, Georgi Abraham1, Milly Mathew

End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) is managed effectively by home peritoneal dialysis in developing countries. However, long term home PD patients are faced with enormous challenges. Here we describe two non-diabetic/ anuric female patients aged 52 and 51 years who continued on Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) for 13 years and 18 years, respectively, with formidable challenges. The following are critically examined in these two patients: Ultrafiltration, Nutritional status, Blood pressure control, Neuropathy, Anaemia correction, quality of life, and management strategies.
