Chronic kidney disease can be divided into 5 stages with stage 5 the end stage and it is the most severe renal damages and less than 15% kidney functions are left. To sustain life for stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients, dialysis usually will be ordered or suggested by the nephrologists and patients have to go to kidney disease hospital for several times to take dialysis regularly.
We know that renal dialysis can definitely prolong the life expectancy for stage 5 CKD patients and the average life expectancy for stage 5 CKD with dialysis is about 5 years. However there are many patients refuse or do not want to take dialysis considering the side effects, dependence on dialysis and the huge cost of long term dialysis.
So what is the average life span for those that have progressed into the 5th stage of chronic kidney disease but still they do not want to begin dialysis? Is there any way that can help improve their life quality and prolong their life expectancy without dialysis or at least without relying on dialysis.
The key point for a long life expectancy for stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients without dialysis are well control of symptoms and complications as well as protecting remaining kidney functions and recovering lost kidney functions.
Kidney failure is not the number one killer for stage 5 CKD patients, end stage kidney disease patients often have a series of symptoms and complications in other organs and systems. Cardiovascular diseases are the major complication and cause of death for stage 5 CKD patients, therefore early preventions and timely treatments are very important for improving the patients’ life quality and life expectancy. The common cardiovascular diseases include hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, uremia hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, pericardial effusion, pericarditis, vascular calcification, atherosclerosis, heart failure, etc. Enough attention and importance should be attached to prevention and treatments for these pathological conditions.
Of cause, stage 5 CKD patients need to improve their kidney functions so that all the symptoms and complications can be treated from the root.
Immunotherapy is a systemic and scientific therapy for chronic kidney disease which consists of accurate diagnosis, thorough blood purification, the combination of Chinese medicines, western medicines and advanced medical technologies to repair renal damages, improve kidney functions and enhance the patients’ immunity.
Only if kidney functions are improved can patients avoid dialysis and have a long life expectancy.
