Is Dialysis A Must for Diabetic with 4% Kidney Function

Is Dialysis A Must for Diabetic with 4% Kidney Function4% kidney function means diabetic’s kidneys have been damaged severely. If left alone, patients’ life must be threatened easily. Dialysis is one conventional therapy to save patients’ life who have low kidney function. Is dialysis a must for diabetic with kidney function 4%?

If the patient has suffered from diabetic kidney disease, called Diabetic Nephropathy, for many years, he or she must know GFR and kidney function level can divide diabetic kidney disease into 5 stages. It is called Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease when patients’ kidney function level is less than 15%. 4% kidney function is fairly lower than this value, so we say the patient’s kidney condition must be quite serious. This is why doctors suggest patient with this condition to begin dialysis.

Because Diabetic Nephropathy usually causes more severe complications than other types of chronic kidney disease, patients with this disease may be suggested to accept dialysis when their kidney function is less than 20% but other patients are usually suggested to do dialysis with 15% kidney function or less. But, this doesn’t mean dialysis is a must for diabetics with low kidney function.

If patients have urine, it means they still have chance to rescue their kidneys. Since patient’s kidney function has been so low, we would like to recommend Stem Cell Therapy.

In recent years, stem cells have been used widely in clinic and more and more kidney failure patients try to use this therapy to save their kidneys. Until now, quite a number of patients do save their kidneys successfully with stem cell therapy.

If you are also experiencing low kidney function due to diabetes, you can try this innovative therapy. However, you should make sure you will accept this therapy in specialized hospital.
