There should continue to be a need for dialysis technicians in the future as the number of people with kidney disease and failure increases. The National Kidney Foundation reports that 26 million U.S. adults—about one in nine people—have chronic kidney disease. The principal cause of kidney failure, according to the National Kidney Foundation, is diabetes. Those with kidney failure must have either dialysis or a kidney transplant in order to live. This steadily increasing number of patients in need will mean a continued demand for dialysis technicians.
