    2014-05-02 03:16| Font Size A A A

    What Is The Life Expectancy of Patients with Stage 5 CKDCKD is divided into five stages, and stage 5 is the end stage, which is also the most severe stage of chronic kidney disease. For most patients with stage 5 CKD, their kidney function is too low to guarantee their body health, and they will need dialysis to prolong their lifetime. Now that stage 5 CKD is so severe, what is the life expectancy of patients with stage 5 CKD?

    What is the life expectancy of patients without dialysis?

    For patients with stage 5 CKD, their GFR level is below 15ml/min, and that is very low, because the GFR level of healthy people can reach 120ml/min. Kidney is an important organ for our body health, and when it is damaged severely, it can cause many complications.

    dialysis is an important way to control patient’s overall condition, and patients with stage 5 CKD will need it because their kidney function is too low, which can help correct the metabolic disorders in patient’s body. If patients do not accept dialysis, they may just have several months to live.

    What is the life expectancy of patients who accept dialysis?

    Kidney has the function of regulating the metabolic balances of electrolytes, fluid and acid-base, and the metabolic disorders of these substances can cause severe problems in patients’ body.

    As we have said, dialysis can correct the metabolic disorders in our body, and that is very helpful for patients to protect their kidney function and overall health condition. In fact, for most patients, it is normal for them to live more than five years if they accept dialysis and other medical treatments.

    However, it is hard to predict a certain patient’s life expectancy, because many factors like nursing care, complications, habitus, etc, can affect patient’s overall condition obviously.

    Thereby, it is necessary for patients to take measures to protect their kidney function as early as possible. If you have any trouble in dealing with your condition, you can leave us a message about your problem and details. We can provide the guidance you need or do what we can to help you.
