    How Long Is the Life Expectancy for Someone with Stage 4 CKD

    2015-05-10 07:03| Font Size A A A

    How Long Is the Life Expectancy for Someone with Stage 4 CKDStage 4 CKD is a relatively advanced kidney disease stage which indicates dialysis or kidney transplant will be applied in the near further. Actually, a lot of people are intrigued about stage 4 kidney disease life expectancy. Here we will talk about the topic.

    How dangerous is Stage 4 CKD?

    A person with stage 4 chronic kidney disease means that his more than 70-85% kidney functions are lost. After all, as the second most advanced form of this disease, it cannot be avoided that a certain amount of fear is associated with its presence. But really, if you do everything it takes to reverse the adverse effects of advanced kidney disease, you can dramatically increase your life expectancy.

    But it’s my duty to tell you each case should be seen individually and there is no completely scientific way to predict the exact figure of lifespan with only seeing patients’ creatinine level, GFR, kidney function. There are also many factors that need to be taken into consideration such as the underlying causes of kidney damage, age, gender, lifestyles, daily diet, and treatments and so on. Therefore, it is more significant to know how to prolong patients life expectancy rather than a specific number.

    Well then, how to prolong life expectancy for Stage 4 CKD patients?

    Dialysis--as the life-sustaining kidney disease treatment, it can help prolong patients life time to some extent. Generally speaking, dialysis can enable another 2-5 years for end stage renal failure patients. For stage 4 patients, dialysis can help them avoid some life-threatening risks such as hyperkalaemia, heart failure, etc.

    Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy-compared to dialysis, it is a more effective treatment to improve renal function above 10% and maintain certain amount of urine. What’s more, it can improve patients life’s quality and reduce frequent dialysis or even avoid dialysis.
