Diseased kidney

Diseased kidney
The Diseased kidney - The kidney at left was removed from a person with adult polycystic kidney disease – one of many disorders that may damage kidney function to the extent that dialysis is needed.

In people with damaged kidneys, the process of maintaining the balance of electrolytes and water, and
of excreting waste products, may fail, causing harmful, even life-threatening, effects. Dialysis can take
over the function of the kidneys until they start working normally again. Or dialysis can function for the kidneys for the rest of a seriously affected person’s life if a kidney transplant is not performed.
