ESRD Life Expectancy With Sclerosis

ESRD Life Expectancy With SclerosisEnd-stage renal disease (ESRD), is also known as Stage 5 of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Many renal problems may progress to this end stage. The life expectance of ESRD is affected by many factor, such as age, race, physical state, illness condition or treatment history. Sclerosis will worsen the life expectance of ESRD patients.

How does sclerosis affect ESRD?

Many diseases damage kidney function by attacking the glomeruli. Those tiny units inside the kidneys are responsible for filtering blood. The glomerular capillary wall is the filter membrane. A variety of pathogenic factors continuously stimulate the glomeruli for a long time, resulting in a microcirculation disorder in the glomeruli. Therefore, the endothelial cells of glomeruli are damaged due to lack of blood and oxygen.

With glomerular sclerosis, GFR (glomerular filtration rate) will be much lower than 15ml/min in ESRD. More wastes and fluids accumulate gradually inside the kidneys, leading to worse illness condition.

What is the life expectancy with sclerosis?

As for the life expectancy of ESRD with sclerosis, there are several conditions due to different treatments.

1. If untreated, there is little chance that the end stage renal disease patients can survive longer than weeks. Effective and timely treatment can greatly prolong the patient’s life expectancy.

2. Dialysis may be the first choice, though it cannot cure end stage renal disease. Adequate dialysis can enable the patients to live for more 3-5 years. Dialysis should not be stopped without the doctor’s permission, and the duration of dialysis should be based on how serious glomerular sclerosis is.

3. Kidney transplant is another choice for patients who want to get rid of dialysis. The rate of patients with one year of lifespan is about 92%, over five years is 80% and over 10 years is 54%. However, organ rejection, infections or drugs and other factors can reduce the lifespan.

4. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a more natural and effective treatment to prolong the life span of end stage renal disease with sclerosis. It can help repair damaged renal tissues, restore renal structures and enhance kidney function so as to prolong the lifespan of patients, and help them avoid dialysis and kidney transplant.
