How long will life expand with dialysis? Perhaps it is such a question cared about by lots of kidney failure patients on dialysis. Now follow us to see how experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital answer this question.
Firstly, there is no an exact answer to how long life can expand with dialysis. There could be a number of factors can affect it such as how old the patient is, how sick they were when they started dialysis and what other problems and illness they have. Indeed, the cause of the kidney failure plays a huge role in the survival rate for those on dialysis.
High blood pressure: 77% through year one, 33% through year five and 14 after 10 years.
Diabetes: 71% through year one, 29% through year five and 11% after 10 years.
Polycystic Kidney Disease: 94% survival through year one, 70% through year five and 42% after 10 years.
Unknown: 76% through year one, 41% through year five and 19% after ten years.
So, it is meaningless to talk about how long life can expand with dialysis. Experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital think that the most important thing for dialysis patients is how to treat their kidney disease properly. After all, dialysis cannot replace our kidneys 100%. Nowadays, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and other Chinese therapies are used in the clinic to save kidneys by repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function. In that case, dialysis times can be reduced, or even dialysis can be stopped.
Once kidneys can work again, they will remove creatinine and other harmful substances out of body to clean the blood, so the damage to kidneys and any other organs in the body will be avoided, thus improving the life expectancy for dialysis patients.
