It might depends on the countries. However, in most of countries, the answer to this question is “yes”. The cost of PD only includes dialysate,nursing cost and machine cost if APD, whicn is markedly lower than the cost of iHD and CRRT. You can find more data on the comparison of cost between PD and HD in the paper published on PDI 2001;21(s3):s307.
I would like to remind you that the choice of RRT mode is not only depending on the cost of therapy but also the actual situation of patients.
