When chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses to end-stage kidney failure, the kidneys lose their functions and the patient needs to undergo kidney replacement therapy, which replaces their functions. They include hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplant. In this episode, we will focus on the features and precautions of hemodialysis, the most common type of therapy. In particular, hemodialysis patients are prone to develop sarcopenia, a decrease in muscle mass. Also, find out about another option known as conservative kidney management.
