Stage 5 CKD with 4% Kidney Function: What Shall I DoStage 5 CKD with 4% Kidney Function means that your kidneys are going to lose their functions totally. You may have to live on dialysis or wait for a kidney transplant. But do not lose hope, it may be also possible for you to live a normal life.

Reasonable diet

Reasonable diet plays an important role in treating kidney disease, because it is indispensable everyday, or we will starve to death. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, diet can not only provide the necessary nutrients for the body, but also treat disease. For example, low sodium diet can help control blood pressure and edema, low but high quality protein diet can decrease the proteinuria and lessen the burden on kidney. However, diet therapy is just an adjuvant treatment.

Healthy lifestyle

Leading a healthy lifestyle is also important.

-Do not stay up.

-Do exercise regularly, such as walking, jogging, tai chi and so on. It can boost your immune system.

-More important, you should keep a good mood. It is helpful for overcoming kidney disease.

Aggressive treatment

In stage 5 CKD, dialysis can take over part of the kidney functions to filter wastes and toxins from the blood. But over time, dialysis can bring many side effects, such as skin itch, cramp, nausea, etc. What is worse, the remaining 4% kidney function will lose totally. Therefore, we should choose some therapies that can improve kidney function. Though the necrosis part of kidneys can not recover, the injured one can be improved through aggressive treatment.
