    How Long Can Renal Failure Patients with GFR 16 LiveChronic kidney disease is a progressive disease, which means patient’s kidney function will be damaged gradually, and it will cause patients to have many health problems in this process.

    GFR is an important standard to assess patient’s renal condition, and the severer patient’s kidney damage is, the lower GFR will be. Well then, if patients with kidney disease have GFR 16, how long can they live?

    In fact, if patients can have well treatments and nursing care, and if they do not have severe complications in their body at the same time, they can have much better prognosis. But some patients may already severe complications, like renal osteopathy, cardiovascular diseases, etc, and patient’s prognosis will be much worse at this point. Besides, patients with GFR 16 will need to accept Dialysis, which can prolong patient’s lifetime effectively.
