2014-01-06 07:01

What Is the Life Expectancy of Stage 5 Kidney FailureMany patients with Stage 5 Kidney Failure wonder their life expectancy. Though Stage 5 Kidney Failure is the end stage of kidney disease, it does not mean you have limited life expectancy. What on earth is the life expectancy of Stage 5 Kidney Failure?

It is difficult to answer this question, because it depends on many factors, such as age, race, gene, gender, diet, lifestyle, treatment, complications. Though you can not change your age, race, gene and gender, you can change your diet, lifestyle, treatment and lessen complications.

In stage 5 kidney failure, your glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is less than 15 %. Dialysis and kidney transplant are the common treatments to sustain your life, both of which replace your damaged kidney to filter the wastes and toxins from your body. You have a good chance of living for many years on dialysis, if you keep a good attitude and does what the dietitian ad physician prescribed for you to do.

Though dialysis could prolong your life for a number of years, it has many side effects, such as skin itch, cramp, nausea and vomiting. These side effects will also affect your life expectancy. In fact, dialysis and kidney transplant are not the only alternatives for stage 5 kidney failure patients. If you still have urine, it indicates your kidney function does not lose completely and then you have the chance of getting rid of dialysis. Polluted Blood Therapy combines many blood purification methods, which can not only cleanse the wastes in the blood, but also draw the toxins adhered to the blood vessel. When the blood circulation is improved, kidney will gradually repair itself. This therapy has been proved effective on kidney failure by many patients. As long as your kidney function recovers to more than 15 %, you can live without dialysis and you may live a normal and full life.
