    The Life Expectancy of Patients with End Stage Kidney Disease

    2014-03-21 09:59| Font Size A A A

    Kidney disease is divided into five stages, and stage 5 is the end stage, at which dialysis usually will be needed.

    As a matter of fact, many people may have this curiosity: what is the life expectancy of patients with end stage kidney disease?

    As we know, kidney is an important organ for our body health, because it is in charge of our internal balance by filtrating excess fluid, electrolytes, acid or base, etc. While for patient with end stage kidney disease, his glomerular filtration membrane (GFR) is below 15ml/min, while the normal GFR should be about 125ml/min. So, patients with end stage kidney disease usually have severe metabolic disorder in his body, and that is why patients with end stage kidney disease need to accept dialysis to prolong his lifetime.

    What is the life expectancy of patients with stage 5 kidney disease who accept dialysis?

    Dialysis is an effective measure to prolong patient’s lifetime, because it can help remove the excess fluid in patient’s body, remove the metabolic wastes, correct the imbalance of electrolytes and acid-base, etc.

    For most patients who accept dialysis, it is common that dialysis can guarantee them to live another 3~5 years.

    On the other hand, only dialysis can not protect patient’s life, because it just makes a well internal circumstance. Patient will need other treatments to control their condition and solve their health problem.

    What is the life expectancy of patient without dialysis?

    For patients who have end stage kidney disease but do not accept dialysis, because their low kidney function can cause many internal imbalance, their life expectancy will be very bad.

    Patients’ life expectancy will also be very different due to their different condition, because some patients may have well tolerance to the accumulated toxins in their body, and they may not have obvious symptom even they are in the end stage. While other patients may have obvious symptoms in their body, which will damage their body health greatly.

    For most patients, they may just have several months to live, but for patients who have severe health problems, they may just have several weeks.
