Dialysis can be a common treatment for kidney disease patients, especially when the condition develops kidney failure. As a matter of fact, everything in the world can be a double-edged sword, and dialysis will be no exception. There has lots of knowledge about dialysis treatment. Now follow us to learn more about the dialysis prognosis.
Sometimes dialysis can be very necessary and important, but the fact is that it is not a long-term method. Here we will explain dialysis prognosis from the several aspects:
-Dialysis can help kidney disease patients relieve some symptoms such as high creatinine level, high BUN level, edema, shortness of breath and so on. So dialysis can help improve the life quality to a certain degree.
-Some related materials have shown that the average life expectancy for dialysis patients is about 4.25 years, and about 23% of patients can live for 10 years. If GFR 10 lasts for one -two months, and kidney failure patients are not treated with any treatments including dialysis, then they can only live for about 6 months. So we can say dialysis can help prolong life expectancy for kidney failure patients to a certain degree.
-Some side effects of dialysis including headache, low blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, fever, itchy skin, muscle cramps, chest pain, sleep problems, etc may appear. And this can become one of reasons why more and more kidney failure patients decide to stop dialysis treatment.
-Dialysis can only replace one part of functions of kidneys. Kidney failure patients will notice the decreased urine output with long term of dialysis treatment, which indicates the continue loss of kidney function. When nearly all of the kidney function is lost, kidney transplant will become the only choice in many countries.
