End Stage Renal Disease refers to a clinical syndrome related to the imbalances of fluid, electrolyte, and hormone as well as metabolic abnormalities. Patients with this disorder usually have to adopt dialysis in order to maintain alive. While, how long can End Stage Renal Disease patients live after dialysis?
In fact, predicting the lifespan of ESRD patients on dialysis is far beyond the control of science, as many factors will make it changeable.
In general, the life expectancy varies with different cases from 2~3 years to decades. To date, if all the things go smoothly, the survival time of dialysis is similar to that of renal transplantation. Around 80 percent of patients can live for over 1 year and 60 percent of them can live for more than 5 years.
Factors that may lead to death within the first 5 years on dialysis include too late beginning of dialysis, patients with serious complications, and rather elder age and so forth. Commonly, heart failure is regarded as the number one factor to increase by 5~10% in mobility rate.
Dialysis can save patient's life because it can help keep people with End Stage Renal Disease alive. However, it fails to prolong patient's life span. In order to live a much longer life, patients are recommended to find an integrated Chinese-western medicine therapy.
Other than simply receiving dialysis, patients with End Stage Renal Disease should find a holistic therapy to improve the kidney function. Only when the renal lesions have been repaired, can patients have the chance to get rid of dialysis and live a much longer normal life. Besides, the ealier the comprehensive treatment is taken, the less long-term renal damage will be. More information, please feel free to mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Best wishes!
