What treatments are available for kidney failure?

There are two treatments for kidney failure--dialysis and kidney transplant. The dialysis treatments or transplanted kidney will take over some of the work of your damaged kidneys and remove wastes and extra fluid from your body. This will make many of your symptoms better.

  • Two different types of dialysis can be done--hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. Both remove waste products and extra fluid from your blood.

  • A kidney transplant is an operation that places a healthy kidney in your body.

What is the best treatment for me?

You should consider many things when choosing a treatment for kidney failure, including your lifestyle, your age, any other health problems you may have, and whether you have a friend or relative to help you. Your decision should be based on more than your medical history and your doctor's opinion. It should also be based on what you and your family wants. Learning about your treatment choices will help you decide which one is best for you.

Will I need to take medicines or follow a special diet?

Most likely, your healthcare team will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. Your treatment plan may include taking medicines, restricting salt, limiting certain foods, getting exercise and more. You will also need treatment for any other health problems you may have, including high blood pressure or diabetes.
