Life Expectancy of Kidney Failure without Dialysis

2013-03-02 11:24

Dialysis is a major treatment option for kidney failure. However, it brings so many side effects and can afflict the patients a lot. So many patients do not want to start dialysis or wonder to stop it. What is life expectancy of kidney failure without dialysis? It depends on variables.

If the patients have serious complications of Kidney Failure such as lung edema, high levels of potassium etc and high levels of toxins in blood, they will die in several days after dialysis is stopped.

However, if the patients have no serious complications of kidney failure and have not started dialysis yet, they can delay dialysis. If they can control their condition well and prevent complications, they still can live for years even if they are in renal failure. So the life expectancy of kidney failure without dialysis is impossible to predict.

Certain tips will prolong life expectancy of kidney failure without dialysis.

1. Diet plays an important part in the treatment of kidney failure. The metabolic wastes are from what we eat and then filtered out of body by kidneys. A restricted diet can reduce the production of wastes, thus reducing burden on kidneys.

2. Control complications of kidney failure. A majority of patients do not die of kidney failure, but its complications, such as heart failure, infection, etc. So it is important for the patients to follow the doctor’s treatment advices to control the complications of kidney failure.

3. Treatment is the decisive factor for the life expectancy of renal failure without dialysis. If the patients do not do dialysis, they should use alternative treatment to help improve renal function of the native kidneys. If the kidney can work better, the patients will be able to live longer without dialysis.

The life expectancy of renal failure without dialysis is influenced by so many factors. If the controllable factors can be managed well, their life expectancy will be prolonged.
