How Long Can One Live with Stage 4 Renal Failure and CHF

One of my friend was diagnosed with stage 4 renal failure with 35% renal function. Also he has congestive heart failure. He has decided to not take any medications. I want to know what should we expect. How long can he live without medication.

As his kidneys have been damaged so seriously, if no medications are used, dangerous levels of toxins and wastes will build up in blood. These toxins will damage every system and organs in body. Heart failure is one of major death causes for people with renal failure. As kidneys are damaged, they will fail to remove potassium from blood. High levels of potassium can worsen congestive heart failure and even cause acute heart failure.

Also, high levels of fluids will accumulate in body. In serious case, even blood vessels and lung may be filled with fluids. It can cause difficult breath and even death.

Additionally, uremic brain disease, digestive tract disease etc also can threaten life and cause death. For these serious conditions, your friend may live for a very short time.

However, there is no a definite answer to the question. If your friend do not have other serious complications like high blood pressure, proteinuria, etc, he can live longer without medication.

Therefore, no one can determine how long he can live without any references. However, we can know that his life expectancy will be reduced significantly.
