Dialysis is necessary when a patient’s kidneys can no longer successfully:
- Remove waste, salt and extra fluids from the bloodstream to prevent harmful toxins from building up in the body.
- Keep a safe level of necessarily compounds in the blood, such as potassium, sodium and bicarbonate.
- Help control blood pressure.
Davita Dialysis Centers offer a comprehensive selection of dialysis treatment options, including hemodialysis (where blood is drawn from the body and passes through an external filter), home dialysis (Davita provides training, materials and supprt to patients and family members) and peritoneal dialysis (where the patient’s abdominal cavity is used as a filter).
