How Long Can People Live without Dialysis with Kidney Failure

2013-10-15 16:13

Kidney failure means the severe reduction of kidney function. This stage requires dialysis treatment or kidney transplant in the near future. But the fact is that no one kidney failure patient wants to take dialysis treatment. Now follow us to learn something about how long can people live without dialysis with kidney failure.

Well, it is difficult to say how long people can live without dialysis with kidney failure exactly, because many factors can influence the result. As to kidney failure patients, not all patients have to go and experience dialysis treatment, it depends on patients’ specific condition.

If kidney failure patients are in any of the situations such as serum potassium level exceeds 7mmol/L; pH is less than 7.25; BUN is more than 54mmol/L; carbon dioxide combining power is less than 15mmol/L; there are some severe symptoms or complications like severe edema, shortness of breath, heart problems, etc, then patients had better begin dialysis treatment. Otherwise more severe consequences even death can be caused. Some related data have shown that if kidney failure patients have had GFR 10 for one to two months and they are not treated with any treatments, then the life expectancy can only be 6 months.

However, if kidney failure patients do not need to begin dialysis at present, then an efficient treatment which can help repair kidney damage and recover renal function is needed to improve the life expectancy. If kidney failure patients still have nearly normal urine output and there are no any obvious symptoms or complications, then dialysis treatment can be postponed.

Nowadays, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Stem Cell Therapy can be used to reverse the condition by repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function. Once this can be achieved, kidney failure patients can live a normal life, though how long people can live without dialysis with kidney failure is still an unknown number.
