2013-10-24 11:45

Life Expectancy for People on HemodialysisHemodialysis is usually required when paired kidneys are damaged severely. Hemodialysis can help prolong most kidney failure patients’ life span, but their life expectancy is still less than that of healthy people. Well, how long can someone live with hemodialysis?

According to clinical research, the average life span of people on hemodialysis is about 4 years, but there are still some patients enjoying their life more than 20 years. Why is this so different for various patients?

This is because patients’ complications, remaining kidney function level and accepting treatment determines the answer. If you have the following complications, you may need to receive some treatments to manage them.

● High blood pressure


● Anemia

● High potassium or phosphorus level

● Acidosis

● Proteinuria or hematuria

● Cardiovascular disease

All of the above complications can affect your life quality, and some of them are even life-threatening. If you have one or more, well control of these problems can improve your life expectancy to some extent.

Remaining kidney function is another factor to affect hemodialysis patients’ survival rate. The higher kidney function level, the better their medical condition. Hence, to improve kidney function as much as possible is fairly necessary.

To achieve this, we have begin with three points: cleanse the inner body system repeatedly and completely, supply enough blood and nutrition to impaired kidney cells, and prompt the restoration of kidney filters. Then, kidney function level can increase gradually.
