What Stage of Renal Failure Should Patient Consider Kidney Transplant

What Stage of Renal Failure Should Patient Consider Kidney TransplantIf successfully, kidney transplant can give kidney failure patients a chance to live as normally as general population. However, the procedure of this surgery is complex, so if patients have better treatment option, they won’t decide to accept kidney transplant. Do you know at what stage renal failure patients will consider transplant?

Kidney Transplant for kidney patients

Most often, nephrologists suggest renal failure patients to wait the kidney transplant list, when their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines to 20ml/min. According to GFR, chronic kidney failure is divided into five stages. GFR 20 indicates stage 4 kidney failure in which GFR usually ranges from 15 to 29 ml/min. That is to say, patients should prepare for this surgery at stage 4 renal failure, because it is difficult to find a matched kidney donor.

How long should patients wait for kidney transplant?

It is difficult to answer. Some patients find their matched kidney source quickly, so they are arranged to do this surgery very soon. However, some other kidney failure patients never find their kidney donor, and finally they die of renal failure.

Is kidney transplant a must for kidney failure patients?

No, it isn’t. Apart from dialysis, some other therapies are also helpful to prolong kidney patients’ lifespan. If patients’ kidneys haven’t failed completely, they still have chance to improve their GFR and avoid kidney transplant and dialysis. However, the detailed treatment plan should depend on patients’ illness condition and medical condition.
