What Is the Life Expectancy with A GFR of 8
Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) 8 means you are in end stage renal disease (ESRD), in which you may have to start dialysis to prolong life. What is the life expectancy with a GFR of 8? Read on to learn more information.

Theoretically dialysis can help kidney failure patients maintain life, but dialysis has many side effects, which can affect your life expectancy. Some studies show that average life expectancy on dialysis is 5-10 years, but many patients have lived well on dialysis for 20 or even 30 years. And life expectancy on dialysis can vary depending your other medical conditions and how well you follow your treatment plan.

Treatment to help prolong life expectancy with a GFR of 8

Because of the low GFR, a large amount of waste products and fluid build up in the blood. Although dialysis can filter a part, there are still some accumulating in the blood. These wastes do not only cause further kidney damage, but also counteract the effect of your current treatment plan. Therefore, you need a treatment to improve internal environment.

In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. This is a systemic treatment, which makes use of various traditional Chinese medicine therapies, such as Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy, etc. Those therapies can make use of your kidneys, intestinal tract and skin to eliminate waste products from body. They can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and protect the residual renal function.

After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

After about half month’s treatment, symptoms such as weakness, cold limbs, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, headache and so on will get relieved greatly.

After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved, and then your living quality will get promoted.

What is the life expectancy with a GFR of 8?
