How serious is 17% renal function?

Kidneys are a pair of important organs in body.They can keep the balance of fluid and different minerals in body by filtering out the waste products and extra fluid from body.A variety of diseases and conditions can affect normal kidney function,resulting in gradual loss of renal function and chronic kidney disease (CKD).CKD can be divided into five stages based on patients’ renal function.A person with 17% renal function is in stage 4 CKD.In this stage,the patients experience a host of discomforts and complications like fatigue,edema,high blood pressure,bone disease etc.If the condition keeps worsening, Dialysis will be required soon.

It is hard to predict how long to live with 17% renal function as it is affected by variables.Some patients may live as long as the general population.However,some may live for a very short time if the renal function deteriorates rapidly.

Firstly,the underlying cause of kidney damage is very important to predict the prognosis of kidney disease.If the pathological change is very serious, renal function can decline at a fast speed.For example,FSGS is associated with a very poor prognosis.

Secondly,the associated complications is a significant factor in affecting the life expectancy of 17% renal function.If the patients have serious complications like proteinuria, high blood pressure,cardiovascular disease, they often have a shorter life expectancy. On the contrary, aggressive control of the complications can help prolong the patients’ life expectancy remarkably. Email to kidneycares@hotmail.com  to get some tips to manage the complications.
