    Can Dialysis Be Avoided by Patients with Stage 4 CKD

    2014-04-27 03:35| Font Size A A A

    Can Dialysis Be Avoided by Patients with Stage 4 CKDChronic kidney disease is divided into five stages, and stage 4 CKD means patients have a very severe condition. In fact, for most patients with stage 4 CKD, their kidney function is so low that they will need dialysis in the near future. But dialysis is not a perfect choice, so many patients with stage 4 CKD may have this curiosity: can dialysis be avoided by them?

    Why patients with CKD need dialysis?

    Kidney can regulate our body’s internal metabolic balances, while CKD can damage patient’s kidney function. As a result, patients will have many metabolic disorders in their body when their kidney function is damaged severely, and that can cause patients to have severe health problems, like cardiovascular diseases. which can cause death.

    While dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, which can help correct the metabolic disorders in patient’s body, and that is very beneficial for protecting patient’s body health.

    Can dialysis be avoided by patients with stage 4 CKD?

    For most patients, their doctors will recommend them to accept dialysis when they have 15% remaining kidney function, and that is about when patients are going into stage 5 CKD, because most patients’ body condition can not bear the metabolic disorders in their body.

    Thereby, dialysis is an important way to prolong patient’s lifetime, and it will be needed when patients have severe metabolic disorder. So, if patient’s kidney function can be well protected and patient’s kidney function is not too low, they will not need dialysis. However, CKD is a progressive disease, and it is hard to slow down the progression of patient’s disease at this point. Thereby, dialysis is a relatively better choice at this point. Besides, it may be impossible for patients with stage 4 CKD to avoid dialysis, but with appropriate treatment, the period before they need dialysis can be prolonged obviously.
