Kidney disease is not a condition to be undermined. It may lead to complete renal failure which, without proper treatment, may greatly affect a patient's survival, or even lead to death. Most patients rely on dialysis while waiting for a donor kidney which could take months, or even more. However, while dialysis has been most beneficial, I found out from http://www.dialysisinjuryhelpline.com/ that some drug solutions used in dialysis treatment also carry their own risk of side effects.
