8% Kidney Function Life Expectancy Without Dialysis

8% Kidney Function Life Expectancy Without DialysisIf patient with kidney failure has 8% left kidney function, how long can he live without dialysis?

How long can patient with 8% kidney function without dialysis?

Kidney function is assessed by patient’s glomerular filtration rate (GFR). For healthy people, his GFR can reach 125ml/min, so if patient’s left kidney function is about 8% kidney function, his GFR is about 10ml/min. If patient’s GFR is below 15ml/min, dialysis will be recommended.

In fact, many factors can affect patient’s prognosis, like habitus, nursing care, diet, etc. In general, if patient do not accept dialysis when his left kidney function is 8%, toxins and wastes will accumulate in patient’s blood rapidly, which can damage patient’s body health greatly, and patient may just have several months to live.

Besides, for most patients who are in the end stage of kidney disease, severe complications can attack them, that can aggravate patient’s condition obviously if the complications have not been well controlled, and complication is also a major cause of death case.

Why dialysis is needed ?

Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy to help remove the harmful substances in patient’s blood, so that it can effectively reduce the harm which is caused by these substances. For most patients in the end stage of kidney disease, dialysis can help them live for several years, and some patients can even live more than ten years with the help of dialysis. That is why dialysis is needed to patient who is in the end stage of kidney failure.

On the other hand, dialysis can also take many side effects to patient, like itching, muscle cramp, nausea, vomiting, high or low blood pressure, heart diseases, etc, which can take suffering experiences to patient, and that are also the reasons why patient give up dialysis.

In fact, dialysis is a good choice for patient with 8% kidney function, but if right treatment is accepted, patient’s kidney function is able to be improved, which can also prolong patient’s lifetime obviously.
