How Long Can PKD Live After Stopping Dialysis

My father has PKD and has decided to stop dialysis and go home with hospice. How long can we expect him to live? How to prolong his life span?

Answer
The Doctor Answered:

How Long Can PKD Live After Stopping DialysisAverage life span of PKD patients after stopping dialysis is one to four weeks. Does he still have urine output? I do not know why he wants to stop dialysis, but if he still has urine output, he can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

Different from dialysis, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy cause no side effects and sufferings. It can not remove toxins in blood immediately, but it can shrink kidney cysts and improve kidney function, which can help to prolong his life span.

So far there is no treatment for PKD and as of now what we can do is to stop it from causing further problems. Also, PKD is a genetic kidney problem, so is there anyone else in your family has this kidney disorder? If yes, please bring the patients to effective medical treatment as soon as possible. Although PKD is not curable, it can be stopped from progressing to kidney failure, if effective treatment is given timely.

Besides, if no one else has been found to have PKD, I suggest you to have regular medical tests like CT scan, B ultrasound, blood test and urine test to keep kidney observation. Early diagnosis and treatment will help you protect residual kidney function and delay or even avoid kidney failure.
