Question: I am female, 43-years old and start dialysis on about two weeks ago. How long can I live with dialysis? What can I do to prolong my life span? Please help me.

Life Expectancy of 43-year Old Adult on DialysisAnswer: I am sorry I cannot give you a specific answer, because life expectancy is affected by many factors such as age, physical health, medical history, and complications. Current medical literature quotes 22% annual mortality rate which suggests 5 year survival rate. However, younger and otherwise healthy subjects can live 10 -20 years on dialysis. Few of them may live with dialysis more than 30 years. If you want to know more information or suggestions, you can send you test report to, and our doctors will analyze it and then give you suggestions in details.

Here I can give you some advice briefly.

Firstly, design a healthy diet plan. Low sodium, high-quality protein, controlled potassium and phosphorous are required.

Secondly, closely monitor some signs. If a person has hypertension or diabetes, he or she had better take a regular test to monitor the blood pressure and blood sugar level. In addition, your weight, urine output will also be recorded by the doctor.

Finally, chooser right treatment and medicines. Some medicines like diuretics may be prescribed by the doctor in order to relieve some discomfort during dialysis. I strongly you take Chinese herbs, instead. They are more natural and effective. Therapies based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is one of the widely used among kidney disease patients. You can try it.
