How long can someone on dialysis go without a treatment?

If you are on dialysis, it’s important to receive your treatments as scheduled. When you miss dialysis treatments, the toxins build up in your blood causing you to become sick. The longer you go without treatments, the sicker you can become. Every person is different, but generally how long a person can go without dialysis depends on the amount of kidney function they still have.
