What is Dialysis?
Dialysis is a treatment that filters and purifies the blood in your body by passing it through a machine to be cleaned. We need dialysis when the kidneys stop working properly. Dialysis does some of the things done by healthy kidneys, which includes removing waste, salt and extra water to prevent them from building up in the body. This helps in keeping safe levels of certain chemicals in your body for example potassium, sodium, and bicarbonate.
