|Kidney failure, a life-threatening condition, is treated with dialysis or a kidney transplant. While dialysis is an effective treatment for filtering excess fluids and waste products that accumulate in your body during renal failure, it performs only about 10 percent of the work of a healthy kidney.
A transplant will allow you to live a more normal life without needing regularly scheduled dialysis treatments. Long-term dialysis may cause other serious health problems and complications, including high blood pressure, anemia, heart or bone disease, nerve damage or infection.
Survival rate is significantly improved by transplant compared to dialysis. A successful kidney transplant gives you the opportunity to live longer and have a better quality of life.
