Kidneys basically looks like a pair of bean shaped organs located on either side of the spine. Our kidney act like a purifier which purifies the blood by removing out metabolic waste products and excess fluids exist in our body. But when our kidney stops purifying or can say stop filtering, at that time dialysis is the second option to restart the purification procedure of the blood in the body.
