In brief: Dialysis

Most people with esrd will need to have dialysis, but if your esrd is not quite to that degree, your doctor will have you follow a special diet, make sure your blood pressure stays low, and have you take medicines that help the kidney to function.
There are 2 types of dialysis, peritoneal and hemodialysis. Peritoneal is done at home while you sleep, and hemodialysis is done at a center.

Also kidney transplant would be an option as well.

In brief: Dialysis

In most cases, when pt's have reached the end stage of renal disease it means that their kidneys are no longer working at all.
And if that is so, then one would usually require 3 times a week dialysis at least to treat buildup of renal waste products in the blood.
