Hi Zeph,

  1. is there any limitations that dialysis treatment has?

Not sure what you mean by “limitations?” In what? Dialysis isn’t the same as having healthy kidneys. It replaces some kidney filtering function, but drugs are needed to replace some of the hormones kidneys make–dialysis can’t do that. Limitations on day to day life depend on which type of dialysis. The more dialysis you get, the better you can feel–more often or more time at each treatment or both. Try Kidney School (http://www.kidneyschool.org to learn more about dialysis & what it can & can’t do.

2.What biology knowlage is relted to the working of dialysis?
??? Dialysis is based on chemistry principles–diffusion and ultrafiltration, not on biology. Not sure what you mean.

3.how does nephritus affect the functioning of the kidneys?
Neph = kidneys. itis = inflammation. Nephritis is inflammation that can slowly stop the kidneys from working. If you put nephritis into Google or another search engine, you can learn more about it. There’s a foundation: http://www.cc.utah.edu/~cla6202/HNF.htm, they have some info too.
