How Long Can You Live With Uremia

2017-08-11 03:49

How Long Can You Live With UremiaUremia is also called end stage of kidney failure. Kidney disease causes lost renal function and patients began to experience a series of symptoms. However, uremia is not a fatal disease. You can still live with dialysis and kidney transplant.

Dialysis is the most common treatment for kidney disease. Generally 90% uremia patients can live with dialysis for 1 to 3 years. 5 years of dialysis later, complications are difficult to be controlled. Aside from kidney transplant, patients all have a low life quality. 10 years later, the survival rate of kidney transplant patients also declines. But kidney transplant is still considered as the better treatment compared with hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

How to live longer?

1. Kidney Transplant

The survival rate of transplant is high but donor is rare and it is expensive. The actual situation scares uremia patients off transplant.

2. The combination of peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis

The life quality in peritoneal dialysis patients is higher than patients in hemodialysis. Also peritoneal dialysis can protect residual kidney function. Hemodialysis can lead to some side effects like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and low blood pressure, etc. But the hygiene of peritoneal dialysis is not standard so infection is prone to occur. The best way for dialysis is that you first take peritoneal dialysis. When peritoneal dialysis is not sufficient, you can take hemodialysis.

Is there any better treatment for uremia?

Yes, kidney transplant and dialysis are not the only way for uremia. In our hospital, we create a systematic Chinese medicine treatment including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Medicinal Soup, etc. They can purify your blood just as the dialysis does. After your blood is purified, injured kidney tissues can be repaired through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. In this way, your renal function can be improved. Then it is possible for you to avoid dialysis or kidney transplant. But patients have to come to China for treatment.
