You can still live a longer life of 20% Kidney FunctionLife expectancy of 20% kidney function has become a hot issue. More and more patients want to know how long they can live with 20% kidney function. Actually it is affected by many factors. The treatment you take and when you take treatment can all affect your life span.

What will happen in 20% kidney function?

When you have only 20% kidney function, you may experience some obvious changes, which include:

1. Anemia

Kidneys produce erythropoietin, a hormone that is responsible for red blood cell maturation. With advanced kidney disease, you will have fewer mature red blood cells, leading to anemia.

2. Excess potassium

With 20% kidney function, you will have high levels of potassium in your blood because your kidneys fail to remove excess potassium from the body. It is a life threatening condition that can cause abnormal heart rhythms and death.

3. Excess phosphorus

Due to the loss of kidneys’ ability to filter phosphorus, you will experience itchy skin caused by excess phosphorus.

4. Edema

If you have only 20% kidney function, you may have edema in you legs, hands, feet and even lungs which can make breathing difficult.

5. Urine changes

You will have bubbles in your urine, which is caused by excess protein excretion. You may have abnormal urine color and frequent urination at night.

How to live a longer life expectancy with 20% kidney function?

Dialysis and kidney transplant are two common treatments for kidney patients. But they both have side effects. Dialysis can cause low blood pressure, infection, muscle cramps and anemia, etc. And kidney transplant is more difficult. For example, you have to find a good match and the waiting list may be long. All in all, dialysis and kidney transplant are not the best treatments for kidney patients.
