Stage 5 Kidney Failure: How Long Can A Person Live with 5% Kidney Function

2013-11-02 15:51| Font Size A A A

Patients with stage 5 kidney failure are attacked by severe kidney damage.When kidney function declines to 5%, the patients are in a dangerous condition. How long can a person live with 5% kidney function? Here I want to say that there is still hope for patients with only 5% kidney function to live longer with proper treatment.


With severe kidney damage, the kidney cannot filtrate the waste product and toxins in the blood, while the accumulation of the toxins in the blood will cause further damage to kidney. So dialysis is often used as the replacement methos to remove the these product from our body. With no severe complications, dialysis can prolong the lifespan of patients with 5% kidney function to about 3-5 years.

Kidney transplant.

Kidney transplant is recognized as the life-saving method for patients with stage 5 kidney failure. If you are lucky to have a proper donated kidney, kidney transplant is a better choice for you. A successful kidney transplant could offer a longer lifespan and a better life quality for patients with 5% kidney function. It can enable new function of kidney. But you should live with the anti-rejection drugs for the rest of your life. What’s more, there is still possibility to have new kidney damage after kidney transplant.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

The root method for patients with 5% kidney function to live a longer life is to protect the residual kidney function and improve the overall kidney function. In terms of this goal, Chinese medicine---micro-Chinese medicine osmotherapy deserves your consideration. By dilating the blood vessel, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix, this therapy can repair the damaged kidney cells and save the residual kidney function, thus to improve the overall kidney function.
