Basically you have medicine, diet, excersize and knowledge to help keep your symptoms and disease at bay. However if you decide that you aren't going to utilize those tools and also if your disease has progressed to a point that your kidneys are going to fail, treatments are Hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis. Kidney transplant is often thought of as a cure but there is no cure for kidney disease. Transplant is a treatment as most last between 5 and 15 years. Some transplants never work (very rare) and there are other transplants well into their third decade.If you have any more sspecific questions I would be happy to answer. By the way I was on dialysis over a year and have had a kidney transplant for 5.
