Renal Replacement Therapies

Renal Replacement Therapy

In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, patients can manage their health by maintaining a proper diet and taking the appropriate medication. However, if kidney function declines to less than 15% of normal, medications and a proper diet may need to be used with other therapies. At this point, patients need to consider alternative ways to managing their kidney health. Renal replacement therapies include dialysis, transplantation and non-dialytic care.
