When is peritneal dialysis indicated? What is the prognosis for patients that should have peritneal dialysis? A friend of mine had some kind of kidney failure. I don’t exactly know how serious his condition is. He has to have peritneal dialysis. Please tell me more about this problem. Thanks.

Peritoneal dialysis is way to remove waste products from blood that can’t be removed by kidneys. Clearance test is done to check the function of kidneys. Normal clearance is about 120ml/min, and in severe kidney failure it can be less than 20ml/min. There are several types of peritoneal dialysis that can be used, depending on patient’s condition. I think that this is not the right way to talk about someone’s prognosis. I hope your friends will get well.
