What is Hemodialysis?

Hemodialysis is a method for removing waste products such as creatinine and urea, as well as excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys are in failure. Kidneys are some of the most important organs in the human body. They function like filters, removing unwanted chemicals and other substances. Furthermore, they control water, mineral and acid/alkali balance, and are responsible for the production of important hormones. There are many factors that can cause kidney problems, including diabetes, hypertension, kidney stones, chronic kidney infections, genetic diseases, and certain medications and chemicals.
