Life Expectancy Of Kidney Transplant

Life Expectancy Of Kidney TransplantWhat is life expectancy of kidney transplant? Kidney transplant is usually regarded as the most effective way to treat kidney disease especially end stage kidney disease. With kidney transplant, patients with kidney disease can avoid dialysis and replace damaged kidney, improving condition and prolonging life expectancy. However, patients with kidney disease are concerned how long they can live after kidney transplant. In view of this, we will make a specific introduction.

Firstly, let’s see the statistics which are concluded by research about life expectancy of transplanted kidney.

92% of transplanted kidney can live in one year, and 80% transplanted kidney can survive for another 5 years. In addition, 54% transplanted kidney can live for ten years. This is life span of the kidney which is transplanted to patients with kidney disease, not life expectancy of patients with kidney transplant. When transplanted kidney is dead, patients with kidney transplant won’t die, but end stage kidney disease will reoccur on them. And they need to dialysis to survive.

Compared with dialysis, kidney transplant can make patients with ESRD live longer and has no side effects. Dialysis has many side effects like low blood pressure, muscle cramps, skin itching and leg restless. Moreover, dialysis can only help kidney eliminate wastes and toxins from body, has no much to help repair kidney damage and recover kidney function. When patients with kidney disease have transplanted a healthy kidney, they can live as normal people as long as body doesn’t reject the new kidney. The disadvantage of kidney transplant is that patients need to wait for a long time to have a proper kidney to transplant.

Some disadvantages of kidney transplant you need to know before you decide to do this surgery.

What need to be taken notice of is that kidney transplant is not suitable for all patients with kidney disease, and it depends on conditions of patients. If patients with kidney disease have severe infection, cancer or hear disease, they are not recommended to do kidney transplant.
