Life Expectancy With 12 Percent Kidney Function

2014-11-08 08:53

Life Expectancy With 12 Percent Kidney FunctionKidney disease can be divided into five stages. In stage 5, also known as end stage renal failure, patients will have less than 15% percent of their kidney function remaining. So 12 percent kidney function indicates that people are in stage 5 kidney disease. At this stage of renal disease, it becomes a life and death matter for patients to take good care of themselves. Life expectancy is also concerned by many patients.

The length of time the person has to live would be determined by their age, how long they’ve had renal failure, if they are receiving dialysis and if they are taking their medications accurately. That is to say, we cannot speak out the life expectancy with 12 percent kidney function. But we are sure the life quality and life span will be increased with the following measures:

1. Tightly control symptoms

In advanced kidney disease, patients will suffer from various symptoms like high blood pressure, anemia, poor appetite, blood in urine and proteinuria, etc. Although these symptoms are not life-threatening, they will worsen your kidney condition seriously and push you in a more dangerous condition without control or treatment. Therefore, it is important to keep kidney disease symptoms under tight control.

2. Follow a healthy diet

If you have kidney disease, your doctor will ask you to follow a healthy diet. Usually, kidney failure patients should follow a diet with low protein, low salt, low potassium and low phosphorus level. This is just a general introduction of diet for kidney failure patients. Because of different illness conditions, patients may need to follow different dietary tips.

3. Avoid bad living habits

Avoid drinking alcohol and coffee, smoking and avoid sleeping late.

4. Repair injured kidney structure and improve renal function

The root cause of kidney failure is damaged kidney intrinsic cells. Thus, repairing kidney damage is the key point. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can achieve this result by way of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing necessary nutrients. All of these provide a favorable internal environment for restoring kidney damage.

There is no exact answer for how many years you can live with 12 percent kidney function. But we can improve your life quality and life span with the above methods.
