The patients with stage 4 kidney disease have advanced kidney damage and most patients have developed many serious conditions. It is very likely dialysis or kidney transplant will be needed in the near future. The decisive factor of life span of stage 4 kidney failure is what treatment you choose.

Conventional treatments for stage 4 Kidney Failure mainly include symptomatic treatments.They can help slow the disease progression, but are not enough to stop its progression. Finally,Dialysis or kidney transplant will be required.
However, if aggressive treatment can be adopted early enough,stage 4 kidney disease will not progress into ESRD. The disease will stay in this stage permanently and even the renal function will have an improvement.
What is an aggressive treatment for stage 4 kidney failure? Firstly, the causes of kidney impairment must be controlled, such as immune disorder, diabetes, high blood pressure etc.By doing this, it can stop further damage to kidneys.
Once kidneys are impaired, it can cause a myriad of problems, such as proteinuria,hyperlipemia, cardiovascular disease etc. These problems are significant causes in worsening renal function and can shorten the life span of stage 4 kidney failure.
