Kidney Kids Dialysis & transplant

Renal failure is described as end stage kidney disease which is treated by kidney transplant or blood filtering treatment which is called dialysis

Dialysis is the process of filtering wastes and extra fluid from the body by means other than the  kidney.

Sometimes, a transplanted kidney may stop working

And the child may need to return to dialysis

Transplantation may be delayed if a matching kidney is not available or if the child has an infectious disease or an active kidney disease that has progressed rapidly

Kidney transplantation is surgery to place a healthy kidney from someone who has just died or living donor, usually a family member, into a person’s body to take over the job of the failing kidney

Once kidneys fail because of chronic kidney disease, function can’t be restored, so transplantation is the closest thing to cure

Children with transplant will need medications every day to prevent their body from rejecting the new kidney and get regular checkups to make sure the new kidney is accepted and functioning properly

Dialysis is the process of filtering wastes and extra fluid from the body by means other than the kidneys. Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are the two types of dialysis

Hemodialysis uses a special filter called a dialyzer to remove wastes and extra fluid from the blood. The dialyzer is connected to a hemodialysis machine

Blood is pumped through a tube into the dialyzer, which uses a dialysis solution to filter out the wastes and extra fluid

The filtered blood then flows through another tube back into the body

Peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of the abdominal cavity, which is the space in the body that holds organs such as stomach, intestine or liver to filter the blood
