Kidney failure comes back in some cases of kidney transplant, which is the biggest worry for people who are considering kidney transplant as their treatment. Failure of kidney transplant does not mean they are not suitable, but also indicate dialysis is required again.
Reoccurrence rate of kidney failure after kidney transplant
Kidney transplant is the treatment for choice for people whose kidneys have been failed completely. It helps to get off dialysis or avoid dialysis, which is an exciting news, but meanwhile, patients must be realized that they are also running a certain risk for kidney failure after kidney transplant.
It is not uncommon to hear someone is on dialysis again after the surgery of kidney transplant. It is heart-breaking, but it is the fact we must realize. For people with kidney failure, they have different risks to develop kidney problem again after kidney transplant and this depends on the initial cause of their kidney failure very much. Generally speaking, people with IgA Nephropathy, FSGS and Glomerular Nephritis have a higher risk.
Kidney disease can be primary or secondary. For patients with kidney failure secondary to other illness like Diabetes, Hypertension, Lupus and Purpura, they should remember to bring the primary disease into control and this will help to lower their risk for the second kidney problem.
Alternative treatment for kidney failure after kidney transplant
In cases of kidney failure after kidney transplant, an alternative treatment is required, as they may suffer from end stage renal disease again if they choose kidney transplant.
As for the alternative treatment, Immunotherapy is recommended. It is a treatment that based on both Chinese medicine and western medicine. In an affected kidney, there are healthy, injured and dead kidney intrinsic cells. Immunotherapy treats kidney failure by repairing these injured kidney cells. Although dead kidney cells can not be revived,but by repairing injured ones, kidney function can be improved.
