What is Dialysis?

When your kidneys are failing, dialysis is a treatment to do the required work of the kidneys to keep your body in balance. Dialysis performs these critical functions:

Removes waste, salt and extra water to prevent build-up in your body
Keeps a safe level of certain chemicals in your blood, such as potassium, sodium and bicarbonate
Helps to control your blood pressure
