Dialysis and Kidney Transplant: which one is better?

Compared with dialysis, kidney transplant takes over all the kidney function. It can not only remove excess fluid and waste from your blood, but also balance electrolyte and acid-base as well as secrete hormones to regulate blood pressure, stimulate the synthesis of red blood cells, etc. Besides, it is more cost effective and allows a return to a more normal life. And you do not need to worry about its side effects. Therefore, kidney transplant is always the dream of ESRD patients.
