A properly functioning kidney helps prevent salt, extra water, and waste from accumulating in body. It also helps control blood pressure and regulates important chemicals in the blood, such as sodium (salt) and potassium. When kidneys don't perform these functions due to disease or injury, dialysis can help purify the blood and remove waste.The length of treatment depends on the patient's size, the levels of waste in their body, and whether hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis is used. Typical hemodialysis treatments last about four hours and are needed about three times a week. Peritoneal dialysis can be done at home, at work, or during sleep, depending on the style of treatment your doctor recommends.
