How Long Can I Live with 10% Kidney Function

How Long Can I Live with 10% Kidney FunctionAs kidney function decreases, levels of toxins and wastes in the body increase, which has bad effects on other parts of body, such as liver, heart, lung, etc. Complications caused by much loss of kidney function are very dangerous and even can threaten life. Thus, if I have 10% kidney function left, how long can I live?

Conditions of patients with 10% kidney function.

In clinic, if there is only 10% kidney function left with patients, it indicates that kidney disease has developed into end stage renal disease. At this stage, GFR drops to less than 15 ml/min and kidney almost has no ability to filter wastes and toxins to keep body healthy. In this situation, doctors always recommend patients to do dialysis or kidney transplant to save life. There are many symptoms at end stage:

- Anemia.

- Output of urine declines.

- Skin itching.

- Bad appetite.

-Nausea and vomiting.



-Swelling in the eyes, ankles, hands, legs, etc.

-Changes in skin color.

- Difficulty with concentration.

- Muscle cramps.

- High blood pressure.

- Numbness in legs and hands.

How to help patients with 10% kidney function prolong life?

If patients with 10% kidney function don’t get treatment, they can live for months, even for weeks or days. Improving kidney function is the only way to prolong life. There are mainly three kinds of treatment:

1. Dialysis is always the primary option for patients. Dialysis can replace kidney to remove wastes and toxins from body. However, dialysis has many side effects on patients such as low blood pressure and infection. What is more, it can’t recover kidney function. Some recent research shows that patients on dialysis can live for 4.25 years on average, and just 23% patients can live for 10 years at most.

2. Kidney transplant can be the best way to keep patients healthy and live a long life, but patients need to wait for many years before there is a suitable kidney donated by others.

3. Besides, there is another option for patients with 10% kidney function called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can make blood vessel expand, make microcirculation speed up and prevent inflammation of kidney tissues, which can further help the whole immune system. Besides, it can repair damaged cells to help recover kidney function, but dead cells can’t be repaired.

If patients with 10% kidney function want to prolong life, they must get timely and proper treatment to recover kidney function. As Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has good effects on kidney function, patients can improve kidney function with this method.
