Dialysis is meant to supplement your body’s detoxing function. When eGFR is under 15% (your kidney can only filter and clean 15% of your blood at this point), you have an excess amount of toxin, such as Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinine, accumulating in your blood stream, cells, and brain, which poison your whole body, making you feel horrible.
