Nowadays, the applications of Stem Cell Therapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy make dialysis or kidney transplant will not be the only choice for ESRD patients any more. Now you can follow us to learn about how different treatment options improves ESRD life expectancy.
How about the ESRD life expectancy?
Actually there is no an exact number to ESRD life expectancy, that is because it can be affected by many factors including patients’ age, whether there are some severe symptoms and complications, what treatments they are receiving, etc. Lung problems and heart problems and other severe complications of ESRD can directly shorten the ESRD life expectancy.
Different treatment options with different ESRD life expectancy
-Dialysis. The average life expectancy for dialysis patients is about 4.25 years, and only 23% of patients can live for 10 years. Though dialysis is very important sometimes, it is not a long-term method, which can be proved by the gradual loss of urine output.
-Kidney Transplant. Compared with dialysis treatment, a successful kidney transplant can make the ESRD life expectancy longer. But the fact is that some patients are not suitable to receive kidney transplant and also waiting for a donor may take years.
-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This treatment is a new development of Chinese herbal medicines which have been used in China for thousands of years. ESRD patients just need to lie on the bed to take it, two bags filled with processed Chinese herbal medicines are put under the lower back of patients. Through anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, extending blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys, kidney damage can be gradually repaired, kidney function will be recovered to a certain degree. However, if ESRD patients have had no urine output for a long time, the obvious treatment effect may not be achieved. Also Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be not helpful to those dead and necrotic cells.
-Stem Cell Therapy. Mesenchymal stem cells or umbilical cord blood stem cells are used to replace embryonic stem cells which involves morality and ethics. Stem cells will be injected into the body and are expected to differentiate into renal intrinsic cells, renal parenchymal cells which can replace the dead and necrotic renal cells and tissues and activate regeneration of body’s own cells. These new functional cells can help repair kidney damages and rebuild kidney functions.
