Is Transplant the Best Option for My Sister who Has Dialysis

2017-12-15 10:57

Is Transplant the Best Option for My Sister who Has DialysisIs transplant the best option for my sister who has dialysis?” He also stated that “She does dialysis three times a week. Her blood pressure is controlled by medicines. Her urinary volume is normal.” Here is a reply from our doctor.

Hello, I am renal doctor of Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. You have leave a message on our hospital’s website for more information about transplant.

Being a specialist, we understand transplant itself, as well as corresponding risk. For example, fatal complications like lung infection might occur during the waiting, and surgery success does not mean the survival of this transplanted kidney, as well as high risk in infection due to long term taking anti-rejection medicines. Even with everything goes perfectly, the average survival period for a transplanted kidney is only 10-15 years, let alone a large portion cases show creatinine increase at 4 or 5 years after surgery.

As to your sister's kidney condition, corresponding treatments will focus on restoring detoxification ability. Because she still urinates normally, with 1.5L daily urine output. However, kidneys now can not discharge toxins like creatinine, uric acid and urea, etc. Treatments here are conservative treatments, including Toxin-Removing Therapy to lower creatinine, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to degrade extracellular matrix, as well as Oral Chinese Medicine to enhance kidney self-healing ability, etc. The exact or accurate treatments schedule will be brought out by nephrologist of top-ranking here in China.

As mentioned, it is still hopeful because certain damage in her kidneys are still reversible. In another word, improving kidney function is still practical. My personal opinion is that she should give herself more choose, instead of depending all hope on transplant. I do not like to emphasize the high rejection ratio, but it is actually not that suitable for such a young lady.

You can firstly discuss with the family, and can you firstly reply me with a more detailed description on her kidney disease history, especially during the past year, when accelerated aggravation occurred.
