Hello,

Kidney replacement (dialysis or transplant) is indicated with any or all of the following:

  • intractable symptoms of end-stage renal failure (usually loss of appetite, severe fatigue, confusion or nausea/vomiting)
  • intractable high potassium, acidosis and to a lesser extend phosphate
  • inability to control your fluid balance (resulting in fluid accumulation in the lungs) and/or severe hypertension
  • pericarditis

Until such time, patients can continue with their daily activities (with modification as required) without kidney replacement.
