How Long One Can Live with Kidney Dialysis

How Long One Can Live with Kidney DialysisDialysis is life-supportive for kidney failure patients, because it can help damaged kidney cleanse blood, so as to protect internal organs from being damaged. In this way, life span is prolonged successfully. Well, how long one can live with kidney failure?

It is really hard to tell an exact number about the life span of kidney dialysis patients, because it differs from case to case. With dialysis, some patients may live as long as people without kidney failure, but some patients may live as short as several days due to the serious complications of dialysis. Life span for dialysis patients is associated with many factors like how old they are, how sick they were when they started dialysis, and what other problems and illnesses they have.

Although there is no exact answer about question “how long one can live with kidney dialysis”, there are more direct statistics available. According to National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease, the dialysis survival rate at close to 80% through one year, 64% through two years, 33% after 5 years and 10% through 10 years.

Indeed, dialysis is life-sustaining, but it does not mean one can live as long as he should with the help of dialysis. Dialysis is just a way to keep blood clean, so as to protect other internal organs when kidneys shut down. It can not repair damaged kidney, so it is not a real and permanent solution at all.

For kidney failure patients who still have urine output, there is chance to strengthen their damaged kidney, which will help to avoid dialysis or reduce dialysis frequency. The alternative treatment we mentioned here refers to a systematic treatment which is composed of different medical methods like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Foot Bath, Medicated Bath, Enema, Steaming Therapy, Acupuncture, Cycle Therapy and so on. With this systematic treatment, kidney function can be improved and dialysis can be avoided when GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate), an indicator of kidney disease, is increased to be higher than 15. Under such a condition, life span is increased to some extent.
