How Long Can One Live with Diabetes Induced Renal Failure

2013-01-15 16:40

It is believed that the patients with diabetes do not die of the disease itself, but the associated complications, in which renal failure is a significant one. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of renal failure and covers a high proportion of people on dialysis. Once renal failure occurs in diabetes, how long they can live become their most concerned issue.

There is no a hard and fast answer to the question ‘how long can renal failure induced diabetes live’ as a variety of factors influence one’s life span. Fortunately, some patients can live as long as healthy people.

The life span of people with Kidney Failure induced diabetes is mainly affected by the following factors:

Associated complications

People with renal failure induced diabetes have a shorter life span than nondiabetics. It is because their life span is influenced by the complications of diabetes significantly.

* Diabetic retinopathy

* Kidney disease itself

* Cardiovascular disease

* High blood pressure

* High cholesterol

If the above risk factors are kept under control, the life span will be prolonged significantly.

Treatment option

Dialysis is a major treatment option for renal failure induced diabetes. However, the survival rate on dialysis is 71 through one year, 29% through five years and 11% after 10 years. Because dialysis is unable to improve renal function, the life span will be reduced.

To prolong the life span of people with renal failure induced diabetes, the goal of the treatment should be restore the kidney structure and improve renal function. Chinese herbal medicine is an optimal treatment option for the patients as it can activate the self-repairing system of the kidney.

Additionally, if the patients are good with the proper diet and fluid intake, it can improve their life quality. They should never break their dietary principles and resume their diet based on their illness condition.
