Kidney dialysis is a medical procedure in which some functions of the healthy kidneys are performed artificially because your kidneys are no longer able to perform them. This happens when your kidneys develop end stage renal kidney failure and their 85-90% functioning is completely stopped. In dialysis, the waste products and excess fluids from your blood are removed. This procedure also maintains acid-base balance in your body and regulates blood pressure.
Kidney failure is not a permanent condition every time. When there is acute kidney failure, the patient needs to get dialysis done only till the time his kidneys get better with treatment. On the other hand, in chronic kidney failure one has to get dialysis done throughout his life or till the time he gets a healthy kidney transplant. The kidneys don’t get better with the treatment and therefore one is left with the above two options.
