There are two types of Kidney Failure. The prognosis and life expectancy is different from each other. Does Kidney Failure Be life-threatening?
Acute Kidney Failure
It means the kidneys suddenly fail to filter waste products from your blood. Acute Renal Failure, also called Acute Kidney Failure can be fatal and requires intensive treatment. However, it may be reversible.
Chronic Kidney Failure
Chronic Kidney Disease can sometimes lead to Kidney Failure. When that happens, they don’t often recover. It also requires dialysis or kidney transplant. Otherwise, patients may die within weeks.
Will dialysis or kidney transplant cure Kidney Failure?
No. Dialysis just help remove some wastes and extra fluid out of the body. It cannot work as well as healthy kidneys. Kidney Failure patients often need dialysis the rest of their life until they can receive a kidney transplant.
Kidney transplant may help patients prolong lifespan to 5 to 10 years. When the new organ failed, they have to take dialysis and wait for another kidney transplant.
Alternative to dialysis for Kidney Failure patients
-Stem Cell Therapy: Stem cells are called “universal cells” because they can have strong ability of differentiating into renal tissue cells and blood cells. They are infused into the body. It is a convenient and safe way for Kidney Failure.
-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. As one of the natural therapies used in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, it is helpful for expanding blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus improving blood circulation and repairing damaged renal tissues.
