15% Kidney Function Life Expectancy

2013-03-30 11:47

Chronic kidney disease can be divided into 5 stages according to remaining kidney functions by calculating GFR. If patients have less than 15% kidney functions, it means that illness has entered into the final stage and dialysis is needed to sustain the patient’s life.

Without effective and proper treatments, 15% kidney functions can not meet the basic physiological needs of the body. Excessive water, electrolytes and metabolic wastes and toxins can not be removed efficiently from the body. As a result patients will have swelling, electrolyte imbalances and metabolic disorders. The blood pressure regulation and endocrine functions are also affected, patients will develop high blood pressure, renal anemia, bone problems.

Since the kidneys are important part of the whole body’s circulating system, renal dysfunctions will affect other organs and systems. When renal function is below 15%, patients will have symptoms in nearly every parts of the body.

Patients with 15% kidney function will be put on dialysis to help replace part of the lost kidney functions and generally dialysis can prolong the patient’s life and enable them another 3-5 years. And if they have the chance of kidney transplant, their life expectancy can be doubled or even tripled than if they are on dialysis.

Actually dialysis and kidney transplant may not be the only choice for end stage kidney disease patients. Kidney function of 15% means that the disease just progresses into the end stage and there is still chance to reverse it into stage 4 and help patients avoid dialysis. Otherwise the illness conditions will continue to deteriorate, the residual kidney functions will be gradually lost and in the end complete renal failure will develop.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has the functions of expanding blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix so as to alleviate ischemia and hypoxia in the kidneys. It can also provide amino acids, trace elements, vitamins and other nutritions to help promote the repairing and regeneration of DNA in the damaged renal intrinsic cells so as to repair damaged renal tissues and improve kidney functions.

After the application of Micro-Chinese Medicines, symptoms can be greatly improved, high creatinine will be lowered, urine output will increase and kidney functions can be improved.
