Kidney Dialysis and Renal Care

Akron Children's Dialysis and Renal Care Center, which opened in 1985, is equipped to diagnose and treat babies, children and teens suffering from chronic or acute kidney failure.

Children with kidney disease often require food and fluid restrictions that may not be compatible with school or home menus. Kidney failure can cause nausea and vomiting, and can seriously threaten a child's nutritional status.

Our dietitians work with renal and dialysis patients to prescribe special diets that help promote normal growth, control the build-up of body wastes, and avoid chemical and fluid imbalance. The special diet also controls bone deterioration, anemia, blood loss and platelet defects.
