Besides, whether patients accept dialysis and appropriate treatment is another important aspect that can affect patient’s prognosis. If patients do not accept dialysis and other treatments to control their condition, they may just have several months to live. While for patients who have accept dialysis and appropriate treatments, it is common to see patients to live another 5~6 years.
