Anyway, dialysis treatment help kidney failure patients prolong their lives. Otherwise their life span can be very limited.

However, it does not mean the prognosis on dialysis for kidney failure patients will be always good. With dialysis treatment, kidney failure patients will notice the decreased urine output, which can tell them the continue loss of kidney function. Kidneys have many functions, while dialysis treatment can only replace one part of them.
