Dialysis is required when the kidneys are in failure. The diseases that most commonly lead to kidney failure are diabetes and high blood pressure. Therefore, you may be able to prevent the eventual need for dialysis with a healthy diet, exercise, and regular checkups.

Preventing the need for dialysis is, first and foremost, preventing chronic kidney disease (CKD). Chronic kidney disease may be caused by high blood pressure, diabetes and other disorders. Close monitoring and treatment of these illnesses are necessary to keep CKF from getting worse. Early detection of the progression of kidney disease is so important. Seek medical attention for any of these disorders.
