Dialysis Treatment in the Milwaukee Area
Dialysis is a treatment that cleans your blood and does some of the jobs that kidneys used to do when they were healthy. You need dialysis when your kidneys are too weak to do their jobs, which can lead to other health problems and you feeling ill. People usually need dialysis when they are in Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 and the GFR (one of the blood tests for kidney function) is <15. Your kidney doctor will determine when it is time for you to start dialysis based on your lab work and how you are feeling.
Educating yourself to understand dialysis better can assist you in being an active participant in your ongoing care. A variety of resources are available along with videos from our doctors to provide additional information about dialysis. Feel free to inquire about any of these topics to learn more during your appointment.
