Your kidneys are like a built-in filtration system that help remove waste, excess fluid, and toxins from your blood. They are also important for blood cell production and bone health. If kidneys don't work properly, harmful substances build up in the body, blood pressure can rise, and too much fluid can collect in the body's tissues, which leads to swelling, called edema.If your kidneys fail, you will need dialysis or a kidney transplant to take over their job.
What Is Kidney Dialysis?
Kidney dialysis is a life-support treatment that uses a special dialysis machine to filter harmful wastes, salt, and excess fluid from your blood. This helps restore the blood to a normal, healthy balance. Dialysis replaces many of the kidney's important functions.
The different types of kidney dialysis include:
- Hemodialysis. Blood is filtered using a dialyzer and dialysis machine.
- Peritoneal dialysis. Blood is filtered inside the body after the abdomen is filled with a special cleaning solution.
