The very first to a healthy lifestyle for a patient with kidney disease is to make the decision in favor of or against dialysis. There are two options for dialysis- hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Post dialysis care is available at The Nephrology Group, Inc. clinics as well as provided in the comfort of your own home. This has shown to benefit several patients in the long run.
Dialysis is most commonly prescribed for patients in the end-stage renal failure condition, when they lose more than 80% of their kidney function. Dialysis helps remove the toxic waste infesting the body and keeps a safe level of potassium, sodium and bicarbonate in the body and it also helps keep blood pressure under control.
