Management with dialysis. As tabulated in the 1997 report of the United States Renal Data System [1], diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are less likely than nondiabetic patients with ESRD to receive a kidney transplant and are most often managed with maintenance hemodialysis (center hemo). A greater proportion of diabetic patients with ESRD are managed with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) or machine-based continuous cyclic peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) than are nondiabetic patients with ESRD.
