Kidneys act as natural filter in our bodies and assist in discharging waste and unwanted water from our blood. A study shows that approximately 1500 liters of blood are filtered by a healthy person's kidney each day and we could not live if the waste products continue to accumulate in our blood. People whose kidneys are either damaged or failed will be unable to perform this operation on their own. In such cases a dialysis treatment is the only option left to them. A dialysis procedure effectively filters out the waste and the toxins before returning back the blood to the body. In effect they act like an artificial kidney. Hemodialysis is the common procedure, which a urologist might suggest. It involves drawing out the blood from a person's veins and the blood passes through a series of filters. The filters help in removing the waste and the purified blood is then pumped back to the person's vein. This procedure lasts about 3 to 4 hours each week and a bit longer in case of elderly people. This treatment can be done either in hospital or at home. However when the treatment is carried out in home, it will be very important for the caretaker to know what to do. Though the treatment is effective it only acts as a filter and does not perform all the operations done by a kidney. With changes to the life and food habits a person undergoing these treatments can lead a healthy and a normal life.
