Life Expectancy After Stopping Dialysis

Q: How long can a person live after stopping dialysis? I can not find an satisfied answer for each of them is vague. I know many factors are involved in estimating the life expectancy after stopping dialysis. However, can you just give me an answer based on an averaged person with averaged Kidney Failure?

A: thank you for your inquiry. I can understand your desire to know how long the lifespan will be after stopping dialysis. But, it really as you mentioned that it is not an exact thing because of all the different factors in each person. The poisons build up at different rates, as does fluid around the heart, how quickly are other organs affected and which ones. But in most cases, they do not give you long.

However, I try to find an answer based on an averaged person with averaged kidney failure. According to current medical literature quotes 22% annual mortality rate which says 5 years survival rate. However, younger and otherwise healthy subjects can live 10~20 years on dialysis. All these are in an ideal average conditions, and the following are the real cases for your information.

“He lived a year without dialysis before he died. But that's a most unusual case. “ From Zach.

“All I know is when my dad stopped dialysis they gave him 7 days to live.......he lasted 10 but was in a great deal of pain the last three days and was basically doped up on morphine for them.” From Cyclops33.

Dialysis can lengthen a person's life but according to the medical college of Wisconsin, 25 percent of people with the disease die after one year,and 60 percent die after five years. About 20 percent of patients die after they stop dialysis.” From ehow

Besides Dialysis, many natural remedies help extent the lifespan and alleviate the pain of end stage of kidney disease. To achieve this goal, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture or Food Therapy may be involved.
