This decision aid is to help you decide which treatment to have when your kidneys start to fail. If your kidneys stop working you may be told by your doctor that you have established kidney failure. This is sometimes called established renal failure (ERF), stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) or end stage renal failure (ESRF).
