How Long Can A Person Live with Stage 5 Kidney Disease

How Long Can A Person Live with Stage 5 Kidney DiseaseStage 5 kidney disease is one serious kidney problem, because this disease itself may be life-threatening and some of its complications are also dangerous. Then, patients must want to know how long patients can live with stage 5 kidney failure?

Stage 5 kidney disease

At stage 5, kidneys are functioning at less than 15%, so kidneys fail to filter blood and maintain the normal internal environment normally. This can cause a series of serious complications such as cardiovascular disease, pulmonary edema, hyperkalemia, metabolic acidosis, and so on. When patients have these problems, they must concern their life health.

The life expectancy for patients with stage 5 kidney failure

As we all know, stage 5 kidney disease (ESRD) patients’ lifespan changes from person to person. Therefore, some patients can live with this disease for more than 25 years, while some other people die only within several month or one year. To extend patients’ lifespan, the most effective way is to choose correct treatment.

At present, there are several treatment options that can help deal with stage 5 chronic kidney disease. (Consult the doctor online to determine which therapy is most suitable for you, if you have this problem.)

1. Dialysis: This is the most conventional therapy to replace impaired kidneys to maintain kidney failure patients’ basic life. However, dialysis isn’t one easy treatment, and it may cause a series of side effects and complications.

2. Kidney Transplant: If enough fortunately, one successful kidney transplant can make patients get a brand new life. However, this surgery still has some risks at present, and the waiting list for kidney donor is quite long. So, not all patients can get a successful kidney transplant.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmothereapy: It is based on traditional Chinese medicine, and it can help repair damaged kidney cells and improve kidney function. As long as patients’ kidney damage is reversed, they can live with their own kidneys safely.
