What Is The Life Expectancy Of Stage 5 Renal Failure Without DialysisKidney failure is divided into 5 stages and stage 5 kidney failure means that less than 15% kidney function is left and the kidneys are severely damaged to not maintain normal daily life. In this case, dialysis or kidney transplant which is renal replacement therapy are necessary.

Dialysis is a way to extend lifetime for kidney failure patients, but it is not a curable treatment. Patients have to take dialysis for the rest of their life until they have chance to do kidney transplant.

However, many renal failure patients are unwilling to take dialysis. On one hand, they can not afford the expensive fees. On the other hand, dialysis will bring some side-effects like low blood pressure, anemia, headache, infections and malnutrition and so on. For this reason, many patients can not stand it.

How is the life expectancy of stage 5 renal failure without dialysis?

Without dialysis, kidney failure patients can also live longer than expected obeying the following aspects.

1. Tight control of symptoms

In stage 5 kidney failure, patients usually have extremely high creatinine level without dialysis and it refers that there are a lot of metabolic wastes and toxins building up in patients’ body. The wastes and toxins will bring patients some sufferings like itchy skin, swelling, headache, difficult sleep and nausea as well as vomiting, etc.

Once these symptoms appear, you should see your doctor and take some proper medicines according to your doctor’s guidance and order after exact and thorough tests.

2. Effective treatment without dialysis

Dialysis and kidney transplant are not the only option for end stage kidney failure. Both of them have serious side-effects and can not heal the kidneys from the root. In this case, immunotherapy may be a good option for renal failure patients. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicines and Chinese herbs. In the process of immunotherapy, western medicines aim to keep symptoms like anemia, high blood pressure and anemia under control, and Chinese medicines aim to repair renal damage and improve kidney functions. As long as kidney function is improved to more than 15%, there is a great chance for renal failure patients to live longer without dialysis.
