There are two "types" of dialysis, i.e., hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Both processes filter the blood to remove harmful wastes, extra salt and water. Hemodialysis is accomplished with a machine. Peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of the abdomen, also known as the peritoneal membrane, to filter the blood. Either way, several renal replacement therapy sessions are needed every week to ensure that the body is not overwhelmed with toxins.
Dialysis commonly follows light chain deposition disease and/or advanced glomerular disease, such as:
- IgA disease (Berger's nephropathy);
- minimal change GN;
- focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS);
- membranous glomerulonephritis;
- post-infectious GN; and
- rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis.
