Not every patient with End Stage Renal Failure (ESRD) has to undergo dialysis treatment. Actually no one patient wants to let dialysis into his or her life. If dialysis is not used, what other treatment options can help End Stage Renal Failure patients?
But we have to say if there are some obvious symptoms or complications like high levels of toxins, severe edema, heart problem, etc, then we suggest patients to take the urgent dialysis treatment in case more serious consequences happen.
If dialysis is not used, kidney transplant can become patients’another treatment option. Compared with dialysis treatment, in general, a successful kidney transplant can help End Stage Renal Disease patients live longer. However, the facts are: waiting for a donor may take years, we can not expect what happens during the waiting; some cases like FSGS, IgA Nephropathy, etc have a high relapse rate after kidney transplant; receiving a kidney transplant costs a lot; some patients are not allowed to take such an operation.
Nowadays, dialysis or kidney transplant is no longer the only choice for kidney disease patients. If patients have had no urine for more than six months, we hope they are lucky enough to receive a successful kidney transplant; if they can still produce some urine amount or they have had no urine for less six months, then the active materials with special functions are expected to be taken to kidneys by blood flow and then make kidneys work normally again. Also we have to take the safety into consideration.
