Will dialysis cure Stage 5 Kidney Failure?
Dialysis, is known as “artificial kidney”, because it removes wastes and extra fluid in the body. But it cannot work as well as healthy kidneys. During this treatment, kidney function is still losing. When dialysis doesn’t work, patients have no choices but to receive a kidney transplant.
How about kidney transplant for Stage 5 Kidney Failure?
Dialysis can help patients live about 5 to 10 years in average. Kidney transplant patients have a better prognosis. But they have to depend on immunosuppressants for the rest life to prevent organ rejection. The new organ can usually work for 5 years. Few people can live another 10 years or more.
