Will Dialysis Shorten Life Span of stage 4 CKD Patient

2014-06-16 11:41

As we all know dialysis is one of the most common therapy for stage 4 CKD, for patients who are on dialysis, they want to know if it will shorten life span of them.

Life expectancy of Kidney Disease depends on many factors, such as the stage of disease , the patient's general level of health and age, and what kind of treatment the patient receives. It is important to weigh quality of life issues as well, as a patient might live four years with one treatment and two with another, but could have a better quality of life with the shorter prognosis.

Chronic kidney disease can be divided into five stages, between one, the least severe form, and five, the most severe. It develops over time and represents a slow failure of the organs. With an acute condition, the prognosis can be quite good if the patient gets supportive care. Dialysis may be necessary to take over for the kidneys initially, and the patient could make a full recovery. Chronic disease involves permanent damage and it is hard to be cured. But no matter what, it can help patients to prolong their life span rather that shorten.

It maybe a scary thing for some patients, though there are people who have extended life expectancy with the help of dialysis. But they had to have it three times a week, and they don’t want to do this forever. So they hope that a suitable kidney donor could be found for them. unfortunately, some patients can not get this chance for many reasons, like overweight or disease condition. Because the doctors want to give organs to people who have the best chances of survival.

From the above informations, we can know that dialysis will prolong life span of stage 4 CKD patients instead of shorten, but it is not the best suitable therapy for them. If you want to know more informations of CKD treatment, please email us. Our email: sjzkidneyhospital@hotmail.com
