Support for Dialysis Patients

Kidneys are organs in our bodies that we need for multiple reasons : filtering waste, producing hormones and generally helping us to run efficiently. Kidney failure is something that often needs to be treated with permanent measures, either with dialysis or a kidney transplant.
