How Long Will One Live With Stage 4 Kidney Failure

How Long Will One Live With Stage 4 Kidney FailureKidney failure is a disease that patient’s kidney function losing gradually, while for patients with stage 4 kidney failure, they are in a very dangerous condition, because their disease is very likely to progress into stage five in this time, which means they will need dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong their life.

Thereby, how long will one live with stage 4 kidney failure?

In fact, there is no an accurate answer for this question, because it depends on many factors.

Kidney function is divided into five stages according to patient’s glomerular filtration rate (GFR), while for patients with stage 4 kidney failure, their GFR is 15~30ml/min, which means they have severe kidney damage in this time.

What bad condition can patients with stage 4 have?

For many patients, because of the accumulation of wastes and toxins in their body, which can damage other systems of their body, many disorders may appear, and their kidney failure may progress into stage 5 before long. While if they have not accepted appropriate treatment, they may can not live longer than one year.

How to have a better prognosis?

While for patients who have accept right treatment, and appropriate care in their life, they can still live for a long time. In normal condition, for patients who are already in stage 5, most of them can live more than five years by relying on dialysis. While it is possible for patients with stage five to live a long time before they get into stage 5 with right treatment and careful life care. Besides, it is worth mentioning that most nephrons in patient’s kidneys are damaged in this time, but this part is possible to be repaired to a great extent.

We have accept a patient whose GFR is just a little higher than 10ml/min, and that means he is already in stage 5, and he has accepted several times’ dialysis. But after two months treatment and care in our hospital, his GFR rises to more than 30, which means he has recovered from stage 5 to stage 3. And after several months home nursing, his GFR rises to more than 40ml/min, which is a big improvement comparing with his primary condition.

Thereby, it is hard to say how long one will live with stage 4 kidney failure. But for patient who is in stage 4, right treatment and care are very important for prolonging his lifetime. Besides, if you have any question, you can consult our online experts, and we are willing to help you.
