About Dialysis

Kidneys play a vital role in keeping our body clean and healthy. Sometimes due to various reasons or ailments, they stop functioning as required.

Dialysis is a medical procedure that is carried out when a patient develops end-stage kidney failure. In general, it is done when you lose about 85 to 90 percent of your kidney function and have a GFR of <15.

The primary objective of performing dialysis is to:

  • Eliminate waste, salt and extra water to prevent them from building up in the body
  • Keep a safe level of specific chemicals in your blood, such as potassium, sodium, and bicarbonate
  • Help to control blood pressure

Some types of acute kidney failure get better after treatment. In some cases of acute kidney failure, dialysis may only be required for a short time until the kidneys get better.

In case of chronic or end-stage kidney failure, kidneys do not get better and the patient will need dialysis for the rest of his or her life. If you are a candidate, you may choose to be included in a waiting list for a new kidney.

Dialysis is generally be done in a hospital, in a dialysis unit that is not part of a hospital, or at home. You and your doctor will decide which place is best, based on your medical condition and your wishes.

There are primarily two types of dialysis - hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

In hemodialysis, an artificial kidney (hemodialyzer) is employed to eliminate waste and extra chemicals and fluid from your blood. To get your blood into the artificial kidney, a doctor need makes an access (entrance) into your blood vessels. This is done by minor surgery on your arm or leg. Sometimes, an access is created by joining an artery to a vein under your skin to make a bigger blood vessel known as a fistula.

In case of peritoneal dialysis, blood is cleaned within the body. The doctor will perform surgery to put a plastic tube called a catheter into your abdomen (belly) to make an access. During the treatment, your abdominal area (called the peritoneal cavity) is gradually filled with dialysate through the catheter. The blood stays in the arteries and veins that line your peritoneal cavity. Extra fluid and waste products are drawn out of your blood and into the dialysate. There are two major kinds of peritoneal dialysis.

There are different types of peritoneal dialysis but two big ones are:

Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) and Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD)

Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) is the only type of peritoneal dialysis that is carried out without the use of machines. You do this yourself, generally four or five times a day at home and/or at work. You place a bag of dialysate (about two quarts) into your peritoneal cavity through the catheter. The dialysate remains there for about four or five hours before it is drained back into the bag and thrown away. This is known as an exchange. You use a new bag of dialysate each time you do an exchange. While the dialysate is in your peritoneal cavity, you can go about your usual activities at work, at school or at home.

Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) usually is carried out at home using a special machine known as a cycle. This is similar to CAPD except that a number of cycles (exchanges) occur. Each cycle usually lasts 1-1/2 hours and exchanges are done throughout the night while you sleep.

If you’re suffering from kidney failure, you will need to conduct dialysis treatments for your whole life unless you are able to get a kidney transplant.  Life expectancy on dialysis can differ depending on your other medical conditions and how well you follow your treatment plan. Average life expectancy on dialysis is 5-10 years; however, many patients have lived well on dialysis for 20 or even 30 years. Discuss with your healthcare team about how to take care of yourself and stay healthy on dialysis.

Though dialysis can easily be done in almost any part of the world, India remains the most sought-after choice due to premium-quality healthcare services and lesser cost. A large number of kidney patients come to India to seek palliative care by experts.
