Why is it done?

Written by :

Kidney failure leads to an accumulation of waste products in the blood known as uraemia. Untreated kidney failure may lead to death. Dialysis is used in kidney failure and may be lifesaving. Dialysis is started when the working of kidneys is reduced to less than 10% capacity. Some people need dialysis temporarily, while others may need it life-long.
