When patients are diagnosed with kidney failure, dialysis is usually suggested to help replace part of functions of kidneys. Due to personal condition, patients will choose different type of dialysis.
There are mainly two types of dialysis, namely hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD). Let’s take a closer look below to see the two different treatments. PD uses your peritoneal membrane to naturally filter fluid and waste from the blood. HD works with the help of a filter outside your body, which is known as dialyzer. With the help from the dialysis machine, blood flows from the body and run into the filter. The filter will help remove the waste and excessive water from your blood and help your cleaned blood flow back into your body.
