Should I Replace Kidney When Kidneys Are Working 10%-15%

Should I Replace Kidney When Kidneys Are Working 10%-15%Kidney patients have to consider kidney transplant, if their kidney function is quite low. When kidneys are working at 10%~15%, it indicates kidney disease has progressed into end stage. In this case, doctors may recommend these patients to replace kidney. Is kidney transplant a must for them?

With the decline of kidney function, patients’ urine output decreases gradually. Therefore, less fluid, waste product and toxins are eliminated from the body. When kidney function declines to 10%~15%, they may cause some dangerous symptoms and complications to threaten patients’ life. Then, kidney replacement therapies are needed.

Kidney transplant is one choice to replace diseased kidneys for filtering blood and maintaining the internal environment balance, if this operation is done successfully. However, because of the high cost and high risk of rejection reaction, quite a number of kidney failure patients don’t have a chance to accept kidney transplant or the transplanted kidney fails to work normally.

If patients don’t have a chance to do kidney transplant, some other therapies are still helpful for them.

Dialysis: This is the most common therapy to cleanse the blood and maintain kidney failure patients’ basic life, but it can only replace one kidney function that is to remove waste products and fluid.

Blood Purification: In addition to hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, this therapy also has some other options such as plasma exchange, immune adsorption, hemofiltration, CRRT, and so on. According to patients’ illness condition, different methods are used. For example, if patients’ kidney problem is Lupus Nephritis, they are recommended to choose plasma exchange.

Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: The principle of this therapy is to cleanse the blood before repairing impaired kidney cells. When kidneys are functioning at 10%~15%, it means a part of kidney cells can still be reversed and kidney function can be improved to some extent.
