Polycystic Kidney Disease Stage 4 Life Expectancy

Polycystic Kidney Disease Stage 4 Life Expectancy Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a common and severe kidney disease, and the cysts in patient’s kidney will grow gradually, which will damage patient’s kidney function in this process, and PKD is the forth reason that can cause kidney failure.

Stage 4 PKD means patients’ kidney function is already damaged severely, and patients will have many obvious symptoms at this point. While, most patients with stage 4 PKD may have this concern: what is life expectancy of stage 4?

PKD is a progressive kidney disease, but it progresses slowly. PKD will attack patient’s body beginning from his born, but most patients will not have any symptom until his middle age.

While stage 4 PKD means patient’s kidney function has been damaged obviously, but it may still need a long time for patient to have kidney failure. In fact, it has been reported that about half patients may have kidney failure when they are at the age of 60, and that ratio will be 60% when patient is at 70.

For patients with stage 4 PKD, it may need another 5 to 10 years for them to have stage 5 PKD. But if patient can accept right treatment and appropriate nursing care, this period will be prolonged longer.

And for patients with stage 5 kidney disease, they will have kidney failure, and they will need dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong his lifetime. In fact, it is common that dialysis can guarantee patients to live more than five years with appropriate treatment and care.

Thereby, for patients with stage 4 PKD, even though their disease is very severe and their kidney function is very low, they should not lose hope, and it is possible for him to live a longer and happy life.
