What is Hemodialysis?

The main function of kidney is to excrete the nitrogenous waste products which are normally generated in our body by normal metabolic process.

 

When the kidneys fail the excretion of these waste products is not possible and these will accumulate in the body and produce various complication.

When more than 90% of function of the kidney is lost the accumulation of these waste products is so tremendous to cause even death. hemodialysis is a method to replace the function of the kidney.

It helps to remove waste products which are removed by kidney normally. Peritoneal dialysis is also another method to remove nitrogenous waste products from the body.
