    Chronic kidney disease will damage patient’s kidney function gradually, and kidney is an significant organ for our body health, so that will lead patients to have many abnormal signs and symptoms. Reduced GFR is an important sign for patients with CKD as their kidney function is damaged gradually by their kidney disease.

    Even though patient’s kidney damage is very severe when their GFR level is 20, there is not an exact answer to this question, because many factors can affect patient’s prognosis.

    For patients with GFR 20, they are going to be in the end stage of CKD, of which GFR range is below 15ml/min, and most patients will need to take dialysis at this time. In fact, most patients may have severe complciations with GFR, and that can damage patient’s prognosis obviously. Besides, factors like nursing care, treatment, diet and life habits can also affect patient’s prognosis obviously.

    In fact, if patients can have well control on their condition, it is possible for them to live another ten years. There are lots of nephrons just in a damaged state, and they can be repaired if proper treatments can be taken. Besides, even for patients with dialysis, it is normal for them to live on dialysis for more than ten years, and there are aslo people who can live on dialysis for more than ten years.

    Thereby, if patient’s condition is not very severe, and if they can accept proper treatment and nursing care, and have right diet plan and life habits, it is possible for them to live another ten years.
