Kidney transplant is regarded as the last life-saving straw by stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients. It can help patients get rid of dialysis and improve the quality of life to some extent. Compared with dialysis, kidney transplant makes patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease live longer. However, kidney transplant has its own disadvantages: it may take years to wait for a donor; there has a high relapse rate after receiving kidney transplant, such as PKD, FSGS cases. Many stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients begin to look for other treatments during the wait.
