Treatment for kidney failure through dialysis filters blood, much like healthy kidneys, to rid the body of unwanted toxins, waste products and excess fluids. Dialysis provides a substitution for the natural work of the kidneys, so it is also known as renal replacement therapy (RRT). As kidneys fail, the body may have a very hard time cleaning the blood and maintaining the delicate chemical balance in the systems of the body. Dialysis prevents the waste products in the blood from reaching hazardous levels. With medical supervision, medication, diet and proper care, people can live longer with dialysis performing some of the functions of the kidney.
