Dialysis – Treatment for Kidney Failure
Kidney dialysis treatment can be the best solutions for the patients who temporary of permanently have lost their kidney function due to chronic renal failure or kidney disease. It is an artificial kidney function replacement that helps to remove the wastes and extra fluid from blood.

Further, it also excreted many of acidic products from our body that cannot get rid of through the respirations. Our Kidney is also involved in production of red blood cells and formation of healthy bones in the body. If our kidney fails or stops to functioning properly, the waste and excess of fluid cannot be removed from the blood and consequently the blood pressure raises and it all result into swelling and itching.
Hence, in case of kidney failure, a substitute is required to done its functions properly.

Kidney dialysis types include peritoneal dialysis, hemofiltration and intestinal dialysis.
Whatever type of dialysis you are choosing you must follow some precautions such as go through a diet chart advised by your doctor, take special vitamins and other medicines to maintain a level of calcium, minerals and phosphorus in the blood. If you choose a hemofiltration you are required to take the treatment three to four times in a week, but it is strictly advised to all the patients who are going through hemodialysis treatment to follow a strict diet control and fluid control comparatively to those patients who are taking peritoneal dialysis.
Peritoneal dialysis is the best option for the patients who prefer independence. This type of it can be given at home. Peritoneal treatment is given every day to the patient. The major disadvantage this treatment is infection, because in this type of it a plastic tube goes from peritoneal cavity to outside the body and from this part of the body bacteria may also enter into the body.
