Is It Bad For 11% Kidney Function To Avoid DialysisToday when I opened my mail box kidneycares@hotmail.com, I received such a question from a kidney failure patient. He said that: I am in stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) with about 11% kidney function, but doing pretty well without dialysis. I have some symptoms of uremia such as tired, strange taste in my mouth and itching, etc. but I am trying to avoid dialysis. Does anyone know if it is bad for my body to be avoiding dialysis.

Actually when to start dialysis depends on many factors. Some people have very low kidney function but have no severe symptoms, they can still live without dialysis. However, some people have more than 11% kidney function but have serious kidney symptoms, they have to live with dialysis. Usually with 14% kidney function, it is time to prepare for hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. You need 10% renal function to survive.

Kidney failure patients usually experience tiredness and itchy skin. Tiredness, sleep your body is fatigued due to low kidney function but not all poisons are being removed. It will be improved on dialysis. Itchy skin is due to high phosphorus levels. Binders are available to help fix this problem.

If you really do not want to undergo dialysis, you must take treatment to improve your own kidney function and protect the residual kidney function. As long as your kidney function is improved to 15%, you can live well without dialysis. To improve renal function, you can have a try of Chinese medicine. Some medicines can repair injured kidney tissues, improve blood circulation and provide some nutrients. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys can get restored to some extent and kidney function can be improved gradually. Besides, some Chinese medicines can remove toxins from your body and balance electrolytes to help alleviate kidney symptoms like itchy skin and fatigue as well as other conditions.

With 11% kidney function, you have a large chance to improve your renal function and avoid dialysis. Be optimistic and hope you get improved soon.
