Renal Replacement Therapy World Kidney Day

Renal Replacement therapy is used to replace the lost functions of the kidneys, such as filtering the blood, regulating electrolyte balance, and producing hormones. There are two main types of RRT: hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD). Hemodialysis is a process that involves removing blood from the body, filtering it through a machine, and then returning it to the body. PD involves using the lining of the abdomen as a filter for waste and excess fluid removal. RRT can help patients maintain their quality of life by improving their symptoms, reducing complications, and extending their lifespan. Choice of RRT modality is based on various factors such as age, health status, lifestyle, and preferences of the patient.
