Is Dialysis Suggested For 87 Years Old MaleCan 87 years old male take dialysis? The person who experience ESRD (end stage renal disease) may often be suggested to take dialysis. However, if the person is 87 years old, is dialysis suggested for that so old people?

Unfortunately, it will be very for anyone to answer your question given that they do not know the patient or their medical background.

However, from my understanding as a renal doctor, chance of success tends to decrease with age. This is the the reason why when there is kidney failure in elderly, many of them do not want to have dialysis. In this case, how long can he live without dialysis? It mainly depends on how severe the kidney damage is. If 87 years old male is still passing fair amount of urine, he may live without dialysis for 2 to 6 weeks. If the person is passing little or no urine, the survival rate will decrease to 10 to 14 days.

Is there any method to prolong the life expectancy of elderly people without dialysis?

Traditional herbal medicines have outstanding effects on treating diseases. Here I try to list only the key herbal medicines that will treat the common problems associated with dialysis, and also extend the kidney dialysis life expectancy. For example, hawthorn helps improve heart function, reduces cholesterol, treat artery plaque, increase circulation and treat high or low blood pressure. Besides, olive leaf helps fight infection of all kinds and treat dialysis access point infections, cardiovascular tonic, lower cholesterol effectively.

Apart from herbal medicines, even on dialysis, it is still very much important to exercise. The key point is knowing what type of exercise is best for you, and what intensity is best for you. I have list activities to help you get an idea of what is moderate exercise. You can have bicycling 5 miles in 30 minutes, climbing stairs for 15 minutes, gardening for 30 to 45 minutes or walking 1.75 miles in 35 minutes.
