how does creatinine level come to normal for a kidney patient on dialysis?

Filter, toxins: Dialysis does the work of kidney- removing fluids andtoxins.Electrolytes move along the concentration gradient, so toxins which are high in the blood, goes to the dialysate solution.Creatinine is removed from the blood during dialysis, so these levels are low in the patient after dialysis.
