Kidney Function 20%: How Long Will I Live Without DialysisA person with 20% renal function is in CKD Stage 4, which means kidneys have been damaged severely. Facing the condition, quite a number of patients concern more about a question: How long will they live without dialysis? Today, we would like to give the answer here!

How dangerous is 20% kidney function?

Kidney is an important organ in our body that helps remove wastes, toxins and excessive water from the body, keep electrolyte balance and make some hormones. Due to strong kidney compensatory ability, kidneys can still do a good job even though only 50% renal function remains. However, with 20% renal function, it is too poor to maintain the normal work. Then more and more toxins, wastes and fluid will build up in the body. If uncontrolled effectively, patients’ kidney function will continue to decline. When renal function drops to 15% or less, patients’ life quality will be discounted.

Well then, how long can I live on 20% renal function?

Individuals with renal disease have different life span, even though their kidney works at the same level, after all different people have different tolerant abilities. Generally speaking, if controlled very well, people with 20% renal function can still live for even several decades of years. So it is more significant to know available treatments than the specific life span.

How to prolong life expectancy for patients with 20% renal function?

In Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, there are many alternative treatments to dialysis that can help patients repair kidney damage and improve renal function as well as strengthen immune system, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy, Blood Pollution Therapy, etc. If you want to know more details, you can email to us at or add my Viber/Whatsapp /Wechat +8615512139310.
