How Long Could A Stage 4 Patient With Renal Failure Live

How Long Could A Stage 4 Patient With Renal Failure LiveHow long could a stage 4 kidney failure patient live? Once a person is diagnosed with kidney disease, especially in severe stage 4 renal failure, he or she is much concerned about their life span. To be frank, there is no exact answer for this question. The life expectancy is affected by many factors.

1. Dialysis

We know dialysis is a renal replacement and it helps sustain people life expectancy. However, many of them do not want to have dialysis. So, how long can a person live without dialysis? Well, it all depends on how severe the kidney damage is. Besides, if a person is passing fair amount of urine, he or she can live without dialysis for 2 to 6 weeks. However, if the person is passing little or no urine, then the survival rate decreases dramatically to 10 to 14 days.

2. Age

Younger people survive longer on dialysis than elderly. Eighty-eight percent of those under the age of 20 will live through five years of dialysis. 71% of patients between 20 and 44 years old will survive through five years. 44% percent of those between 45 and 64 will live through 5 years of treatment. And 21% patients on dialysis between 65 and 74 years of age will survive through 5 years. 10% of those over 74 years old will survive through 5 years.

3. Disease cause

The cause of kidney failure plays a huge role in the survival rate for those on dialysis. Therefore, you should know clearly about the primary cause of your disease.

4. Repair injured kidney cells and improve renal function

If a stage 4 kidney failure patient takes measurement to repair impaired kidney cells and improve renal function, he or she could live a relatively longer life span than those who do not repair damaged kidneys and enhance renal function. We have Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema, Acupuncture and Mai Kang Mixture as well as other Chinese medicine therapies. All these contribute to restore damaged kidney intrinsic cells and improve renal function.
