How Long Can Renal Failure Patients Live after Refusing Dialysis

2013-09-30 17:25

Renal failure patients have the right to make the decision to refusing taking dialysis when they feel that dialysis is no longer maintaining or improving the quality of life. However, how long ca renal failure patients live after refusing taking dialysis?

This varies from person to person. Most renal failure patients who stop dialysis die within 8 to 12 days. An occasional patient who has nearly normal urine output may live several weeks to a month. Renal failure patients who have other illness like infections, heart disease or lung disease may die only a few days after refusing taking dialysis. Renal failure patients who stop dialysis usually become very sleepy after a few days and then die in their sleep. Dying from stopping dialysis is considered to be one of the less painful ways to die. If a renal failure patient has pain, it can be treated with medications.

To be honest, we really do not want to talk about the life expectancy of renal failure patients after refusing taking dialysis. Death will be the final result if renal failure patients stop dialysis and then do not receive any other treatments, but please be optimistic about the life, nowadays, an efficient therapy which can help renal failure patients say goodbye to dialysis called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is commonly used in clinic. Of course dialysis treatment will not be stopped immediately, the dialysis frequency can be reduced gradually, if the kidney function can be increased to about 25, dialysis is likely to be stopped.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy aims at save kidneys by repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function, and its appearance brings new hopes for kidney failure patients. If you are ready to stop dialysis treatment, remember that death may not be your final result, you are still likely to live a normal life.
