The Basics about Dialysis
What is dialysis?
Dialysis is a life-saving medical treatment designed to replace many of the kidney’s crucial functions, such as purifying and balancing the liquids in your body.
What does it do?
Dialysis treatment does the following things:
- It helps control blood pressure
- It balances chemicals in the blood such as potassium and sodium
- It removes toxins and waste from the blood
- It removes excess fluid and salt from the blood
Who needs dialysis?
Dialysis is necessary for those who experience temporary or permanent kidney failure. Kidney function is typically measured by an individual’s GFR (glomerular filtration rate). The GFR helps doctors evaluate how well the kidneys are working. Kidney failure is usually diagnosed in those with a GFR below 15.
In the case of someone with a less severe form of kidney failure, dialysis also functions as a life-support treatment that will temporarily replace kidney function while kidneys heal.
In the case of chronic or end stage kidney failure, the kidneys will not recover and dialysis will be necessary for the remainder of the individual’s life unless they receive a kidney transplant.
