How Long Can One Live After Dialysis StartsIt is a very scary time when you or someone you care about suffers from the final stage of kidney disease. The question “How long can I live after dialysis” can bring about a very sobering reality. But the answer depends on a wide range of variables.

1. Disease cause

The cause of kidney failure plays a huge role in the life expectancy for those on dialysis.

Polycystic kidney disease: 94% patients can live through one year with dialysis, 70% can live through 5 years and 42 percent after 10 years.

Glomerulonephritis: 88% patients can live through one year and 58 percent of patients can live through 5 years and 37 percent after 10 years.

Obstructive nephropathy: 82 percent of patients can live through one year after dialysis and 46 percent through 5 years and 21 percent after 10 years.

Unknown: 76% of patients’ life expectancy is one year and 41% is 5 years and 19% can live through 10 years after dialysis.

High blood pressure: 77% patients with high blood pressure can live one year after dialysis and 33% can live through 5 years with dialysis and 14% after 10 years.

Diabetes: the life expectancy of 71% patients is one year after dialysis and 29% is 5 years and 11% is after 10 years.

2. Age

Generally speaking, younger people live longer with dialysis than older patients. 88% of patients under the age of 20 can survive 5 years after dialysis. 71% of those between 20 and 44 years old will live through 5 years, 44% of patients between 45 and 64 years old will survive through 5 years of treatment, and only 21 percent of dialysis patients between 65 and 74 years old can live through 5 years. The number drops to 10% of patients over 74 years old.

3. Time of starting dialysis

Dialysis can not treat disease from the root and it only can extend your life expectancy for a short time. Besides, it costs a lot which needs lots of financial and material resources if you receive it in the early time. Moreover, dialysis can also bring many complications such as vomiting and nausea which are dangerous to your body. However, if you miss the best dialysis time, you may lose the opportunity for longer expectancy due to uremia or other lethal complications. Therefore, it is important to know the time when you start dialysis.
