How Long Can You Live With Stage 5 CKDHow long can I live with stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD)? This question is often asked by kidney disease people. Frankly speaking, there is no exact answer for this question as the life expectancy for stage 5 kidney disease patients is different due to different illness conditions. However, one can live for a long time if the following is met:

1. dietary restrictions

One should follow the dietary restrictions to avoid overburdening the failing kidneys. A proper diet for stage 5 kidney disease patients should be low potassium, low phosphorus, low protein but high quality as well as low sodium intake. If eating lots of fruits will lead to high potassium levels, and if left untreated, high potassium can lead to the heart to stop. But how much you can eat also depends on your specific conditions. We also give a general diet suggestion for kidney disease people.

2. control relative symptoms

controlling relative symptoms can delay the progression of the disease into kidney failure and inhibit further kidney damage. For example, anemia can be treated with synthetic. High potassium can be treated with Kayexalate. High phosphate can be treated with calcium pills. Acidosis can be partially treated with bicarbonate or citrate pills.

Dietary habit and kidney disease symptoms are two major factors which can affect how long you can live with stage 5 kidney disease. dietary changes and symptom management can do some help for delaying the disease’s progression. But they are not enough because these two options do not treat kidney disease from the root.

To prolong the life span, the key treatment goal is to restore the impaired kidney structure and improve kidney function.

Except kidney transplant and dialysis, the radical treatment for kidney disease is Chinese medicine treatment including acupuncture, moxibustion, medicated bath, foot bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. They are natural and effective. More importantly, they have helped many patients avoid dialysis and now they live like a normal person.
