    2014-12-15 07:49| Font Size A A A

    How Long Can A Person Live with ESRD and 10% Kidney Function without Any TreatmentIn ESRD with 10% kidney function, many severe symptoms and life-threatening complications usually drive patients to begin dialysis for sustaining rest life. Even though, some patients with the stage of kidney disease still live by their own kidneys. Well then, for these patients, one of concerned questions is that how long a person can live with ESRD without any treatment?

    ESRD, short for end stage renal disease, is the final stage of kidney disease characterized by the severe decreased glomerular filtration rate of 15% or even less. Actually, kidney function can be well reflected by the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). As for 10% kidney function, it is too lower to maintain the kidney’s work compared to normal range of GFR. With the poor renal function, some patients will live a longer life, while others can not. To get an better a prognosis, please contact us by mailing to or leave a message below directly.

    If patients do not have severe complication like hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, cardiovascular diseases and their kidney still can produce urine, dialysis may be not recommended. And in the condition, if patients who depend on their kidneys want to live safely, some effective treatment should be needed to protecting remaining renal function. Otherwise, along with the deteriorate of illness condition, life can be shorten to large extent. Maybe patients with ESRD live 3 years,or even less.

    If patients have poor illness condition and do not accept any treatment, the following symptoms or complications can reduce life expectancy directly.

    1. Serum creatinine level is more than 8ml/min, and BUN (blood urea nitrogen) level is more than 28.6mmol/L.

    2. Hyperkalemia. Potassium level is more than 6.5mmol/L.

    3. Restless leg syndrome

    4. Chronic heart diseases

    5. Swelling in eyelid, feet, ankles and legs.

    6. Constant vomiting and poor appetite.

    The mentioned above can be life-threatening if left untreated. Although dialysis is alternative treatment, but it is possible to enable another 2-3 years life for patients with ESRD. Because it is just responsible for relieving symptoms rather than improve kidney function.
