Stage 5 Kidney Disease Life Expectancy

2014-01-10 22:56| Font Size A A A

Life expectancy is a hotly discussed issue among kidney disease patients. What is the stage 5 kidney disease life expectancy?

Stage 5 is the advanced stage of kidney disease. The kidney function declines to below 15% and Kidneys almost lose their abilities to work. In view of the life expectancy, many factors should be taken into account, such as the physical condition, the illness progression, the treatments and the mind state. There are no exact answers about how long can a person in stage 5 kidney disease live.

Among all the influential factors, the kidney expert find two factors that influence the life expectancy most, that is the illness condition and the treatment.

Some patients in stage 5 kidney disease develop serious symptoms and complications, such as itchy skin, nausea, vomit, headache, muscle cramps, anemia and heavy swelling, etc. Some even companied by hyperkalemia, heart failure and pulmonary edema. These symptoms and complications will heavily shorten the life expectancy.

Dialysis and kidney transplant are considered to be the last two treatments for stage 5 kidney disease. They all can help prolong the lifespan. With dialysis, the lifespan can be prolonged to 3-5 years on average. A successful kidney transplant can double or even triple the lifespan of dialysis. But not all the patients with stage 5 kidney disease are allowed to do dialysis or kidney transplant. Then is there any treatment that is suitable for everyone?

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suggested to take. It is a natural treatment and it is applied to everyone. No surgery and orally taken medicines are required. This therapy is externally used. An osmosis device is applied to this therapy. The herbs will be permeated into kidney lesions by this device.
