How Long Can You Live with UremiaUremia is also called end stage renal disease (ESRD). It refers a group of clinical manifestations caused by the loss of kidney function. However, uremia is not fatal. You can take advantage of dialysis and kidney transplant to maintain your life. How long can you live with uremia? Read on to learn more information.

Your survival time is associated with treatment and lifestyle.

There was a research which selected 4765 uremia patients from 1977 to 2011. It showed the different survival rates with different treatment ways.

Treatment 1-year survival rate 3-year survival rate  5-year survival rate 10-year survival rate
Hemodialysis 96%  92% 85%   67%
Peritoneal dialysis 97% 88%  78%  54%
Kidney transplant  97% 94% 92%  85%

From the above table, we can see that about 90% of uremia patients can survive 1-3 years.

5 years later, complications become more and more difficult to control. Except kidney transplant patients, other kidney patients’ survival rate declined obviously.

10 years later, kidney transplant patients’ survival rate(85%) also decreased quickly, but compared with hemodialysis patients(67%) and peritoneal dialysis patients(54%), it is still higher.

In fact, uremia is not fatal. Because of advanced dialysis combination, current dialysis patients’ survival rate is much higher than years ago. Most patients can live more than 10 years.

How to live longer for kidney patients?

-Kidney transplant

Its survival rate is the highest, but it is difficult to find a donor and the expenditure is usually very high.

-Combination of hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis

Though peritoneal dialysis’s survival rate is low, but it has a lot of advantages than hemodialysis. The reason why it is low is that your operation is substandard so that it is easy for patients to get infections. Patients with peritoneal dialysis have a higher living quality than hemodialysis patients, and it is good for preserving your residual kidney function and reducing the complications such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, irregular heart beat, etc.

Currently the best dialysis way is that in the first two years, peritoneal dialysis is preferred. Once it becomes inadequate, hemodialysis is preferred. Besides, you can try combine Toxin-Removing Treatment, a systemic Chinese medicine with your dialysis to help repair kidney damage and improve kidney function.
