Once on Dialysis Can You Stop without Kidney Transplant

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-12 09:18

Healthy kidneys can clean blood and produce essential hormones that body needs to keep you healthy. When your kidneys fail, you will have to need replacement treatment. Dialysis is still the primary treatment option for people with kidney failure. However, it is a very excruciating treatment process. Once you are on dialysis, you can stop it without kidney transplant?

In the past decades, unless you have a Kidney Transplant, you have to depend on dialysis to keep your alive. The good news is that the patients have an alternative treatment option which may help them get rid of dialysis without kidney transplant.

Kidneys are composed of approximately one million nephrons. Nephron is the basic structural and functional unit of the kidneys. These nephrons can maintain the basic kidney functions.

However, a variety of diseases and conditions can affect nephrons in an adverse way, leading to impairment and necrosis of nephrons. When a large number of nephrons fail, it will result in kidney failure. Generally, when GFR declines to 15 ml/min, Dialysis will be prescribed.

Dialysis can help the body eliminate waste products to keep the patients alive, but it can not improve renal function. Kidney transplant is a preferred treatment option, in which the diseased kidney is replaced with a healthy one. However, it is difficult to get a matched donor.

How to get rid of dialysis without a kidney transplant? The above article explains the cause of kidney failure. If the impaired nephrons can be restored, the renal function will be improved. Some patients will be able to get rid of dialysis then. However, not all patients will have kidney function improvement. This is because the necrotic nephrons can not be repaired at all. Generally, the earlier the patients have treatment, the higher chance that you have to get rid of dialysis.
