Treatment Options for 2% Kidney Function in ESRD

Treatment Options for 2% Kidney Function in ESRD2% kidney function indicates kidneys have been damaged dangerously. In end stage renal disease, patients should take some therapies to prolong their life expectancy. Today, we are here to introduce some treatment options for ESRD patients with 2% kidney function.

Since patients’ kidney function has been quite low, conservative therapy can’t reverse kidney damage successfully. In view of this, patients should take some renal replacement therapies to save their life.

1. Dialysis

Dialysis is one method to cleanse the blood and remove waste products and toxins from the body. In most cases, ESRD patients with low kidney function are suggested to do dialysis, and the average life expectancy of patients on dialysis is about 5~10 years. However, dialysis may cause a series of side effects and complications easily, so a lot of kidney patients refuse to do dialysis.

2. Kidney Transplant

Kidney transplant is one surgery that replaces failed kidney with one healthy kidney. If fortunately, transplanted kidney can make ESRD patients live just like normal people. However, to prevent rejection reaction, patients should take anti-rejection medicines for the rest of life. Besides, the primary cause like diabetes may cause second kidney failure. This means patients have to go back to dialysis or accept another kidney transplant surgery.

3. Stem Cell Therapy

Compared with dialysis and kidney transplant, stem cell therapy is one new therapy. With the theory of stem cells’ differentiating ability, kidney experts begin to use this therapy to achieve renal regeneration and rebuild kidney internal structure. Only if the differentiated cells can replace impaired kidney cells to work again, can patients live with a normal kidney.

The treatment option should depend on patients’ illness condition. To determine which therapy is suitable for you, you can have a further talk with doctor online.
