How Long Can Patients Live with Dialysis and Diabetes

2013-07-29 17:13


I am a diabetic and have begun dialysis for two years. Now, I even can’t walk. How long can patients live with dialysis and diabetes?


How Long Can Patients Live with Dialysis and DiabetesSide effects of long-term dialysis and bad control of diabetes in long time both can affect patients’ ability to walk. If left alone, they may even threaten patients’ life or cause death. From this point, we can know avoiding the side effects of dialysis and well control of diabetes is the key to prolong your life span.

Generally, dialysis won’t be suggested until patients’ kidney function declines to 15% or less. Once patients begin to do dialysis, patients are more likely to cause some side effects more or less, some of which are life-threatening. In addition, the longer patients undergo dialysis, the more side effects they have. From this point, treatments to improve patients’ kidney function should be sought.

To control diabetes, you should abide by a well planned diet low in sugar or sugar free. Besides, insulin may be needed if diabetes can’t be controlled only depending on diet modifications. Any question about these treatments, you can leave a message or send email to
