    2014-05-12 02:57| Font Size A A A

    How Long can You Live on Dialysis with Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic nephropathy is the most common CKD, which is caused by diabetic nephropathy. For patients with diabetic nephropathy, when their kidney disease is damaged severely, they will need dialysis to prolong their lifetime. As we know, using dialysis means patient’s condition is very dangerous. Well then, how long can patients with diabetic nephropathy live at this point?

    Why patients with diabetic nephropathy need dialysis?

    Kidney is our body’s filter, which can filtrate out the metabolic wastes and excess fluid from our body. By this way, kidney can regulate the metabolic balances of electrolytes, fluid and acid-base in our body.

    As a result, when patient’s kidney function is damaged severely, patients will have the metabolic disorders of these substances in their body, which can cause many severe health problems. To control patient’s overall condition, patients will need dialysis to correct the metabolic disorders in their body.

    How long can patients with Diabetic Nephropathy live on dialysis?

    It is hard to predict what is the life expectancy of patient with diabetic nephropathy who lives on dialysis, because many factors can affect patient’s life expectancy, like habitus, complications, life habits, medical treatment, nursing care, etc.

    For example, dialysis is usually recommended when patients have about 15% remaining kidney function, but some patients may need dialysis more early, because they may have severe health problem caused by metabolic disorder. These patients will have a better prognosis because they have more remaining kidney function. But some patients may already have severe complications in their body when they are accepting dialysis, and patient’s prognosis will be much worse.

    For most patients with diabetic nephropathy who accept dialysis, they can live more than five years, and there are also patients who can live more than ten years, but that is rare.
