According to the National Kidney Foundation, more than 360,000 Americans undergo some form of dialysis treatment each year.
During dialysis, blood is circulated through a dialysis machine that works in place of the kidneys by removing waste, salt and excess water from the body while helping keep a safe level of certain chemicals such as potassium, sodium and bicarbonate in the blood. Dialysis also helps control blood pressure.
