2013-02-24 16:39

Renal Failure, dialysisWhat is the prognosis of Renal Failure patients who are on dialysis? No matter yourself are a Renal Failure patient or you are a family member of patient, you would like to know the answer.

Unfortunately, there is no definite answer to the prognosis of Renal Failure patients who are on dialysis. People on dialysis can survive from a few months to more than 30 years. It depends on Renal Failure patients’ medical history, all kidney disease experts can say is that controlling the comorbid conditions such as high blood pressure and Diabetes, following the dialysis prescription from nephrologist, eating a kidney-friendly diet, (renal dietitian will give you Some Diet Suggestions for Dialysis Patients), keeping lab values and fluid balance in a safe range and exercising as much as possible may give Renal Failure patients on dialysis the best opportunity for a long life.

Another suggestion for Renal Failure patients who are on dialysis is to review available treatment options: a kidney transplant, Immunotherapy, and various dialysis including home hemodialysis, in-center hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and in-center nocturnal hemodialysis. Each of these provides a different opportunity that may fit Renal Failure patients’ schedule and lifestyle. If Renal Failure patients who are on dialysis want to avoid kidney transplant or get rid of dialysis treatment, Immunotherapy may be their best choice.

Immunotherapy combines western medicines, Chinese herbal medicines together, we can say it is a systemic therapy. 95% of kidney diseases belong to immune system diseases, Immunotherapy starts from the abnormal immune system. The main purpose of Chinese herbal medicines is to eliminate immune complexes, repair kidney damage and adjust immune system through degradation, expanding blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys and eliminating pathogenic factor and supporting genuine Qi. If Renal Failure patients who are on dialysis still have some certain urine, then the treatment effect can be more obvious. As long as the renal function can be enhanced, kidney transplant can be avoided, and if it is enhanced to about 20, dialysis is likely to be stopped.
