    How to Prolong Life Expectancy for Kidney Function 12.5Life expectancy is associated with the kidney function level for kidney disease patients. Then, what is lifespan for patients with renal function 12.5? Let’s have a look at this question together.

    First, what does kidney function 12.5 mean?

    It means that you are in stage 5 kidney disease, namely ESRD, and your kidneys stop working well enough. And a high accumulation of waste products and toxins cannot be discharged by kidneys. As a result, many symptoms or complications will occur. In this case, you have to undergo dialysis or kidney transplant to maintain your life.

    How long can patients who renal function 12.5 live?

    To be frank, it is very hard to say the accurate and specific times for these patients due to different illness conditions. Some patients indeed can live a longer life rather than others. As we all know, there is no treatment to cure kidney disease, but what can we do is to take necessary measures to inhibit the progress of illness condition.

    How to prolong lifespan for these patients?

    Dialysis -- Dialysis can help filter blood and remove the excessive wastes and toxins from the body. It can maintain patient’s life to some extent, while it does not a radical treatment. What’s more, patients will suffer a series of side effects, such as anemia, vomiting, low blood pressure and so on. If dialysis does not work well, kidney transplant may be needed. However, it may takes months or years to wait a suitable donor.

    Immunotherapy -- It is a combination of both western medicines and Chinese medicines. Chinese medicines play a dominant role in this remedy. Western medicines are responsible for controlling obvious symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria and blood in urine as well as swelling, etc. However, they fail to repair damaged renal tissues and kidney disease tends to relapse once you stop taking medicines or reduce the dosage.On the contrary, Chinese medicines have an obvious effect in this regard. Immunotherapy with Western medicines and Chinese medicines helps regulate immune disorder and enhance renal function so as to keep kidneys from further damages. As long as kidney function improves a lot, life expectancy for patients with kidney function 12.5 will be prolonged.
