How Long Can People Live With Shrinking Kidneys

How Long Can People Live With Shrinking KidneysHow long can patients live with kidney shrinkage? What is the life expectancy of shrinking kidney patients? Ruling out congenital renal dysplasia, shrinking kidneys are resulted from end stage renal disease (ESRD) or kidney failure. When patients are told their kidneys are shrunk, it means their kidneys have been smaller than half of normal kidney size.

In addition to low glomerular filtration rate (GFR), patients with shrinking kidneys may also have back pain, hematuria, proteinuria, high blood pressure, and some other problems. In severe cases, patients may also have cardiovascular disease or even heart failure which may cause death suddenly. On the contrary, if patients’ complications are managed well and their kidney function stops declining, patients can expect a long life expectancy.

Compared with well control of kidney shrinkage complications, it is more difficult to maintain kidney function level. Therefore, we would like to emphasize to introduce effective treatments for treating kidney shrinkage.

To make damaged kidneys work again, blood circulation should transport enough nutrition, blood and oxygen for inherent kidney cells. This requires patients to take some Chinese medicines which have the property of increasing the blood flow and nourishing diseased kidneys. If you want to take Chinese herbal medicines to repair your kidneys, you can ask the Doctor online to determine what medicines are useful for you.

At the same time, you should eat medications to manage your kidney shrinkage complications actively. For example, if you have high blood pressure, take some anti-hypertensive medications and do Medicated Bath correctly.

Additionally, a kidney-friendly diet plan is also needed to improve patients’ overall health condition. Always make sure your meal plan modifies along with the change of your illness condition. Hopefully, you can improve your life expectancy successfully.
