Dialysis is a treatment that filters and purifies the blood using a machine. This helps to keep fluids and electrolytes in balance when the kidneys can’t do their job.
Kidneys prevent extra water, waste, and other impurities from accumulating in the body. They also helps to control blood pressure and regulate the levels of chemical elements (sodium and potassium) in the blood.
When kidneys can’t perform functions due to disease or injury, dialysis can help the body to run as normally as possible.
