The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, located on either side of the spine. Kidneys are responsible for purifying the blood by removing harmful waste and excess fluid from the body. When the kidneys do not work properly, dialysis is commonly used for performing the functions of the kidneys.

When is dialysis used?
The kidneys prevent waste, extra water, and other impurities from accumulating in the body. They also help us control the blood pressure and regulate the levels of chemicals in the blood, such as salt, sodium, and potassium. They also produce a form of vitamin D that helps improving the absorption of calcium.
When kidneys cannot perform these functions, due to diseases or injury, dialysis helps keep the body functioning as normally as possible. In the absence of dialysis, salts and other waste products will accumulate in your blood and poison the body. However, dialysis is not a cure for kidney diseases or other conditions affecting the kidneys.
