End Stage Renal Failure with Creatinine 5.0: How long can I live

2014-05-27 01:21

Kidney disease patients may know that it is a serious situation when they are diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure with creatinine 5.0. However, they may not know what it means exactly. Thereby, they ask the doctor: How long can I live with end stage renal failure with creatinine 5.0? In other words, what is the life expectancy of this condition?

Life expectancy is influenced by physical fitness, diseased condition, medical treatment and daily healthcare of individuals. I will share with you how treatment will affect the life expectancy.


There are four stages of renal failure and the end stage of kidney failure is also called “uremia”. In clinic, creatinine levels of patients with uremia are more than 707umol/L or creatinine 8.0mg/dL. Creatinine 5.0 indicates that the kidney have been severely damaged for a long time and patients are often recommended to have dialysis, which will definitely influence the life expectancy of renal failure patients.

With an effective dialysis, patients with creatinine 5.0 indeed can experience an obvious decline of high creatinine level. Though dialysis can prolong the life expectancy, it has many side-effects that may be life-threatening sometimes.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

It is a better choice, compared with dialysis. This therapy is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is micronized and permeated into kidney lesions with special certain technology and device. The advantage of this therapy is treating kidney disease by improving renal function, other than just relieving the symptoms. Therefore, with this therapy, end stage renal failure patients with creatinine 5.0 will have a better curative outcome.
