Hello Dayat, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Dialysis or hemodialysis is a therapy carried out in patients with severe kidney dysfunction. Basically, the kidneys have the function of removing all metabolic waste and toxic substances in the blood, maintaining blood electrolyte balance, and removing excess fluid in the blood. The kidneys of people who experience severe dysfunction will not be able to perform all of these functions, so dialysis is needed to replace this kidney function.
Dialysis basically does not always have to be done routinely. In patients with acute kidney failure, for example, dialysis can only be done several times until the kidney disorders suffered have improved and kidney function also improved. But in patients with severe chronic kidney failure, dialysis often has to be done routinely for life. In people who suffer from chronic kidney failure and have to undergo dialysis for life, alternative therapies can be offered in the form of CAPD (continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis). In CAPD, a tube will be placed into your abdominal cavity and from this tube you will enter a special fluid (fluid for dialysis) and this fluid that will absorb toxic substances from your body (as is the function of conventional dialysis) and dispose of it through hose out. In CAPD you don't need to come to the dialysis place and you can do it yourself in your home. Each of these therapies (whether dialysis or CAPD) has its own side effects, but if you don't, the impact on your health will be far greater. Therefore, if indeed your doctor recommends doing dialysis, you should do it.
Another alternative available for patients with chronic kidney failure whose kidneys are completely no longer functioning is to do a transplant / kidney transplant. Kidney transplant is not without side effects. You should discuss again with the doctor who treats you to know more clearly the condition of your illness and the best therapy for your condition.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
