Hello,
Hemodialysis will not clean THC from the blood - detectable levels will remain.
I hope this helps.

Will it lower the detection? well what I mean is if I sustain for a week, and receive my treatment for that week will It be less than usual? because im not eating or sleeping, and ive been waiting for this for so long..
I am very sorry to tell you that hemodialysis will remove minerals like urea, potassium, phosphorus and will have minimal effect on the THC level.
You will have to avoid marijuana for at least 2 weeks to have a level low enough in the blood not to be detected. But THC will still be detectable in the hair.
I hope this helps.

its only blood. not urine or hair
THC remains in the blood for only about 7-14 days depending on how heavy a user you are. So if you avoid marijuana for 2 weeks, it would not be detectable. Even after 7 days , the levels should be quite low.
I hope this helps.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
