Kidney failure is the advanced stage of kidney disease. Kidney function declines to 15% or even lower in kidney failure. In this stage, the life expectancy is the most concerned question. Then what is the life expectancy with 12% kidney function in kidney failure?

Kidneys are the important organs that help clean the blood by filtering the waste and removing the extra water and electrolyte. When kidneys are failed, they cannot well do their work. With only 12% kidney function, kidneys are no longer able to perform at full capacity. So it is hard for you to live longer without taking some treatments. It seems that dialysis and kidney transplant are the last two choices for patients with 12% kidney function in kidney failure.

With 12% kidney function, you are more likely to suffer from nausea, vomit, itching skin, muscle cramps, poor appetite, swelling and high blood pressure. Someone even experiences serious complications, such as heart failure pulmonary edema, vascular disease. If this kind of people stops dialysis, he will end his life within one to four weeks.

Under this circumstance, kidney transplant can help you sustain your life. However, it is hard to get a matched kidney. Even if you are lucky to have one, it is not sure that you can get better because kidney transplant is risky and the kidney disease can come back again.

Is that mean that there is no chance to get better? Of course not. As long as the kidney function can be improved, the disease can be rescued. Then how to improve kidney function? The root cause of kidney function decline is that kidney cells have been damaged. Only if the damaged kidney cells are impaired, kidney function can be improved. While neither dialysis nor kidney transplant have such a function. What treatment can achieve such a effect? The kidney expert suggest Chinese medicine. You can ask the online doctor for detailed information about Chinese medicine, such as its cost, it effects and how it functions, etc.
