Life Expectancy for Patients on Dialysis

2013-10-14 15:48

Life Expectancy for Patients on Dialysis, dialysisDialysis is one of treatment options for kidney disease patients, especially when condition develops kidney failure. Then how much is the life expectancy for patients on dialysis? Now follow us to learn more about dialysis treatment and kidney disease.

Life expectancy for patients on dialysis

Actually there is no an exact number to life expectancy for patients on dialysis. Some related materials have shown that the average life expectancy for patients on dialysis is 4.25 years, and only 23% of dialysis patients can live for 10 years.

Then what should you do?

What you should do is to ignore the life expectancy for patients on dialysis mentioned above. Your condition is different from others, it is meaningless to care about those data. Dialysis treatment is double-edged sword. Though dialysis is very necessary and important sometimes, it is not a long-term method. That is because dialysis can only replace one part of functions of kidney. From the decreased urine output, we can know that kidney function is continued to be lost with dialysis treatment. So more and more dialysis patients decide to stop dialysis when they find it will no longer improve the quality of their life.

What treatment options can help get rid of dialysis treatment?

To recover kidney function is the only way to get rid of dialysis treatment. However, it needs time to achieve this. Perhaps Stem Cell Therapy is the most efficient kidney disease treatments and it helps stop dialysis with least time; Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is another treatment option as it aims at repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function, but it will not be that useful to those dead kidney inherent cells.
