Dialysis - Why It Is Required?

Dialysis - Why It Is Required?

Kidneys are a pair of organs that are located on either side of the spine, each about a size of a fist. The kidneys help in purifying blood by removing toxins, waste materials and excess fluids from the human body. Disorders and dysfunctions of the kidney can lead to severe and often fatal consequences. When the kidneys stop functioning as they are supposed to, dialysis is performed to resume normal functioning in the body.

Dialysis is a type of treatment, which filters and purifies the blood with the aid of a machine. It is an artificial way of purifying blood. There are two types of dialysis, namely hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis, the most common form of dialysis, which involves using a manmade kidney called a hemodialyzer, which removes toxins and waste materials from blood.

Peritoneal Dialysis, on the other hand, is a type of treatment which involves implanting a catheter in the stomach. During the procedure, a fluid called dialysate flows into the abdomen that absorbs all the waste material, which is consequently drained out of the body.

You may need a dialysis if:

  1. Your kidneys are dysfunctional
  2. When waste materials and toxins start to accumulate in the body
  3. In an event of an injury or accident to the kidney such as internal lacerations (wound caused by the tearing of a tissue)
  4. If the creatinine (a type of a chemical waste product) level falls to 10-12 cc/minute
  5. In an event where the kidneys aren't able to work properly leading to accumulation of toxins, irregular amounts of chemicals in the body and other dysfunctions


Weakening of the abdominal muscles and weight gain are some of the risks involved in dialysis. Dialysis is a temporary treatment and serves to function till the time the actual kidneys get repaired. In chronic cases of kidney disease, kidney transplant may perhaps be the last resort.

For itching you can take tab. Levocetrizine twice a day for burning you can take Syp. Cital but before going for this consult a good doc, if it is fungal infection then he will guide you better.

I was diagnosed ckd 3b in 2013 when my serum creatinine was 2.36. With medicines and diet control and minimum required proteinsdiet, I have stabilised it at 1.40. Recently path tests of metro lab showed 1.19 and kailash path 1.40 with a difference of one hour test time. Both the labs claim their results. Any way tell me if I can improve my protein intake. I am 78 yrs. All other path tests are within normal limits. None of the causes for kidney disease apply to me except that I had undergone bypass surgery in1994. What should I eat now. I am a non drinker, vegetarian and non smoker, enjoying excellent health. No diabetes, normal b.P 110/70col.

Hello dear Lybrate user, Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly. This much result variation is absolutely normal with any branded laboratories even with same blood sample at same time. Protein intake should be maintained same as current state, should not be increased to create problems Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery.

Somebody told huge amount of the water intake leads kidney failure, it's true or false.

Somebody told huge amount of the water intake leads kidney failure, it's true or false.
It is false. But do not over drink water. For a normal person 2-3 litres per day is all that is required.

Hello- Testicular pain can be due to varicoicele. You need to perform a testicular ultrasound for it. Urine tests and abdominal ultrasound will not help.

Hi lybrate-user its unfortunate that you are developing kidney stones bilaterally. Well its not a good symptom. You need to check uour serum calcium. Phosphorous.magnesium and vitamin d3. And parathormone level. Often endocrine disease ie parathyroid adenoma is the main culprit. Which alters your calcium balance and predisposes to stone formation. Kindly consult a surgical endocrinologist. To rule out same. Thank you.

Food is not the reason for elevated blood urea and sr. Creatinine levels. It means there is some structural damage to the kidneys. Commonly the damage could be due to Diabetes, Hypertension and some kidney local issues like cystic disease etc. If you have got the blood sugar tests done and if they are normal and if your BP reading is also normal consult Nephrologist who will guide you in trying to arrest the progression of the damage in the kidneys apart from the restrictions on the protein use. Good luck.
