Bloodstream Infections

People who undergo dialysis are at a higher risk of getting an infection because of the need to access their blood frequently.  The immune system of people with chronic kidney disease often doesn’t work well, which makes it more difficult for their bodies to fight infection.  They may be hospitalized more often which also increases chances for an infection.
