How long can you live with GFR 14? This is a hotly discusses question. Many people who are troubled by kidney disease are concerned with the life expectancy. In this article, let’s talk about this question.

GFR is considered to be the best indicator of kidney function. By detecting the GFR, doctor can figure out the exact stage of kidney disease and then treatment will be taken accordingly. GFR declines with the disease progresses. If the GFR drops to below 15ml/min, you may have probably entered into stage 5 kidney failure, the advanced stage of kidney disease. In this stage, dialysis or kidney transplant will be applied to sustain life.

Then how long can you live with GFR 14? Actually, it is hard to give you an exact answer. Many factors are involved in, such as ages, causes of kidney disease, treatments, illness condition, mind state, etc. While, among all the factors, illness condition and treatments matter most.

If you are accompanied by serious problems with GFR 14, dialysis will be used. Normally, with dialysis, 80% people can live another 1 year, 64% people can live another 2 years, 33% can live 5 years and 10% can live 10 years. But at the meantime, dialysis will bring you a lot of side-effects, which will heavily affect your lifespan.

If dialysis does not work at last, kidney transplant will be applied. Kidney transplant will double or even tripple the lifespan of dialysis. But it will take a long time to wait for a proper donated kidney. Even if you have accepted a successful surgery, the disease can relapse again.

Then what treatment is the ideal treatment to prolong the lifespan? Here Hot Compress Therapy is strongly recommended. It is a natural therapy with no side-effect. It can solve kidney problem more completely by repairing the damaged kidney cells, restoring the original kidney structure and improving kidney function. As a result, GFR is also enhanced. You can live much longer than you can imagine with this therapy. If you want to know more about this therapy, you can send an email to for a reply.
