I am a patient with kidney disease, and some symptoms are really troubling me a lot, the quality of my life becomes very poor. Now only 18% kidney function is left, and I am really worry about it. Here I would like to know the life expectancy for a person with 18% kidney function. Your any medical advises are appreciated.
We are here to being new hopes to kidney disease patients. Perhaps things are not that as bad as your imagine.
That only 18% kidney function is left can tell the condition is already in stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure, which means the severe reduction in kidney function. At this stage, some obvious symptoms or complications may appear, which makes the quality of life poor and directly affects the life expectancy. So there is no an exact answer to the life expectancy for a person with 18% kidney function, it can be affected by some factors. Complications like heart problems, lung problems, etc can shorten the life expectancy.
What is more, patients’ages and whether there is a good state of mind can affect the life expectancy. So we think you should ignore this question, go and care about how to improve the life expectancy for 18% kidney function.
Can you still produce some certain urine? We hope the answer is yes. If so, it means there still has blood flow in the kidneys. If the active materials of medicines having the functions of repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function can be taken by blood flow to kidneys, the kidney function still can be enhanced. In that case, the life expectancy will be naturally improved, and the quality of life will be improved.
