Patient with ESRD:How to Expand Their Life Span without Dialysis

Patient with ESRD:How to Expand Their Life Span without DialysisThough dialysis can help prolong life span for end stage kidney failure patients, but it cannot cure the disease. Patients usually will have to have dialysis for the rest of their life until they have chance to do kidney transplant. But as we all know, both of them will bring many side effects to the patient. Then, as a patient with ESRD how can they expand their life span without dialysis?

Many end stage renal failure patients refuse to have dialysis because they can not afford the huge cost or for fear of the risks brought by dialysis. Dialysis patients are not comfortable at all and they suffer from a lot of complications like low blood pressure, malnutrition, anemia, infections, air embolism, pericarditis, pneumonia, etc.

For those patient who are not taking dialysis, the following aspects can help them improve their life expectancy greatly.

Well control of symptoms

End stage renal failure patients usually have extremely high creatinine level without dialysis and this indicates there are a lot of metabolic wastes and toxins accumulating in the patients’ body. These wasteful and toxic substances will cause a series of pains, sufferings for the patients like swelling, headache, sleeping difficulty, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, muscle twitching, etc.

Once these symptoms appears, patients need to seek doctor’s advice and take proper medicines and drugs under doctor’s guidance and order after accurate and thorough tests. Though these drugs and medicines are only symptomatic, they are necessary.

Early prevention and timely treatment of complications

Renal failure, especially the final stage is often associated with many complications and some common ones include heart failure, renal hypertension, hemorrhage, renal anemia, bone diseases, electrolyte disorder and lowered immunity. Among all the complications, cardiovascular complications such as heart failure is the most dangerous, therefore patients should pay more attention to signs and symptoms in other organs and systems especially for those that have pre-existing heart disease.

Close monitoring of some vital signs

Some early signs may be neglected and the best period for treatment may be missed, therefore it is very necessary and important for end stage patients to have close check of their vital signs like blood pressure, blood sugar, blood lipid, electrolyte level, creatinine and BUN. Routine urine test and blood test should be done regularly and in case of some abnormalities, further tests and examinations should be done.

Take alternative treatment of dialysis

For end stage renal failure, dialysis and kidney transplant are not the only choice. Immunotherapy is the combination of Chinese therapy and western therapy which aims at repair renal damages and improve kidney functions. So long as kidney functions are improved, patients can prolong ther life span without dialysis or kidney transplant.
