My mom is diabetic and her kidney is only 5% function. She is 70 years old. How long will she live without dialysis. If she is going on dialysis, how long will she have. And which dialysis is better for diabetic patient?


How Long Will A Person With 5% Kidney Function Live Without DialysisYour mom is a diabetic patient so I’d like to tell you the connection between diabetes and kidney disease.

How does diabetes cause kidney damage?

Kidneys work to filter waste from blood by using numerous tiny blood vessels. High blood sugar will damage these vessels. Because the vessels are responsible to transport blood and nutrition to kidney to support the kidney work. If kidney cannot get sufficient blood and nutrition, kidneys cannot work well and the kidneys will lose the functions to do its job as well.

What will happen if kidneys are damaged?

Our kidneys work for removing metabolic wastes and toxins and purify the blood. If kidneys cannot work well, blood will be dirty and those metabolic wastes will flow along with blood.

Is dialysis necessary?

Your mom must take dialysis to remain her survival because dialysis can earn time for your mom and for you to find a right method. However, times of dialysis must be within 10 times. That is to say, your mom can take dialysis but dialysis cannot be more than 10 times. In addition, you should also know dialysis cannot enhance and recover your mom’s kidney function. Dialysis can only discharge out some of toxins from your mom’s blood. Long time of dialysis can make disease worsen if dialysis times are more than 10 times. In this condition, you need to find an alternative method as soon as possible.

Is there any alternative treatment for 5% kidney function?

Yes, there is an alternative treatment for 5% kidney function. We have Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Acupuncture, Moxibustion, foot bath therapy, and other Chinese medicine treatments. These medicines can repair injured kidneys and improve renal function. When kidney function is improved above 15%, dialysis times can be reduced and dialysis even can be avoided. In this way, your mom will live a relatively longer life.
