What is the Life Expectancy for Patient With 10% Kidney Function

2015-04-13 17:01

What is the Life Expectancy for Patient With 10% Kidney FunctionWhat is the life expectancy for patient with 10% kidney function ? Kidney is such an important organ that we can not live without it. For one with 10% kidney function, his kidneys have already lost the ability to help maintain a normal life. Therefore, we can fight out that it is really hard to sustain the life without dialysis and kidney transplantwhen only 10% kidney function is left.

For one whose kidneys have been injured seriously and only 10% kidney function is left, he is usually suffering lots of discomforts like nausea, vomiting, itching skin, tiredness, poor appetite and swelling and so on. Under such a condition, if he stops doing dialysis without improving kidney function, he can only live one to four weeks. Also, if he can find a matched kidney, kidney transplant may help to improve life expectancy to some extent.

Kidney transplant is helpful, but it is hard to find a matched kidney. Moreover, kidney transplant is risky and in some cases, kidney disease comes back again after the surgery. For this reason, it will be very great if there is a treatment that can help to improve kidney function. Kidney is the organ that help to filter blood. When kidney tissues are affected and fail to work properly, kidney function decreases. Therefore, impairing injured kidney intrinsic cells to improve kidney function is very essential.

For one who has only 10% kidney function, it is possible to get his kidney function improved. As long as kidney function is improved effectively, dialysis frequency gets reduced and this helps to increase life expectancy effectively. Also, if kidney function can be improved to 15% successfully, there is chance for patients to get off dialysis.
