The Average Lifespan for Patients on Hemodialysis

The Average Lifespan for Patients on HemodialysisDialysis has two common types: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is applied more widely than peritoneal dialysis. If patients have begun hemodialysis, they are more likely to suffer from some side effects or complications. Then, they must want to know the average lifespan of a person on hemodialysis.

What is the average life expectancy of hemodialysis patients?

It is impossible to give out the answer directly, because the medical case changes from patient to patient. According to the clinical survey, some hemodialysis patients can live longer than 20 years, but some other patients can only live within several months. In most cases, the average life span for hemodialysis patients is about 5 to 10 years. (To determine how many years you can live on hemodialysis, you are suggested to tell us more about your illness condition online. Then, kidney experts can give you the answer.)

In fact, some therapies can help prolong patients’ life expectancy, so patients can live on hemodialysis more safely.

1. Food Therapy: A correct diet plan is able to help manage patients’ complication and slow down the progression of kidney disease. Although hemodialysis can help replace impaired kidneys to filter blood, patients still need to follow a correct diet plan.

2. Good control of your complications timely: Hemodialysis can cause a lot of side effects such as low blood pressure, muscle cramps, infections, and so on. If you are taking hemodialysis and experience any side effect, you should take action to manage it actively.

3. Improve kidney function: Only if kidney condition is improved successfully, can patients live better with their kidneys. If patients still have urine output, some therapies can help reduce the frequency of dialysis. Check out to determine which therapy is suitable for you online.
