How Long Will End-stage Renal Disease Patients on Dialysis Live

2013-01-08 09:26

If people have End-stage Renal Disease (ESRD), they will need dialysis or a kidney transplant to live. However, how long will End-stage Renal Disease patients on dialysis live?

Kidney transplant is usually regarded as the last life-saving straw by patients with End-stage Renal Disease. Before they have a chance to receive a kidney transplant, End-stage Renal Disease patients take dialysis treatments to strive for time. The dialysis can maintain patients’ lives to some extent through removing the wastes products and excess fluid out of body. Speaking of the life expectancy for End-stage Renal Disease patients on dialysis, Do You Believe The Statistics about Life Expectancy on Dialysis?

The statistics show that the average life expectancy for dialysis patients is 4.25 years, and only 23% of dialysis patients can live for 10 years. We have to say that these statistics mean nothing to some dialysis patients, because they say they have seen such cases that live for more than 20 years on dialysis. Of course we can not rule out this possibility. Different people have different situations. We can not give an exact answer to question that how long End-stage Renal Disease patients on dialysis can live, it depends on many factors, such as whether there are some complications, how much kidney function is left and so on.

In our opinion, End-stage Renal Disease patients on dialysis should regardless of these so-called statistics, what they should do is to keep a good mood, keep a healthy living habit and keep a reasonable diet, do not put yourself under great pressure. However, the experts recommend Chinese herbal medicines which can enhance kidney function through repairing kidney damage to End-stage Renal Disease patients on dialysis. If patients can not receive a kidney transplant for various of reasons, then you should learn more about Chinese herbal medicines which is likely to help you avoid kidney transplant and get rid of dialysis, as long as you still have some certain urine.
