2013-12-22 14:33

How about the life expectancy of PKD after quitting dialysis? Recently, this question is a major concern among PKD ( Polycystic Kidney Disease ) patients. Why? The reason is that PKD is a serious kidney disease resulting from family genes, once the disease is diagnosed, no treatment but to change the genes.

Dialysis or kidney transplant, both of them are used commonly in clinic to cope with kidney failure or other emergency illness conditions, including PKD. However, why PKD patients want to stop it may be due to the following three possible reasons:

1. The first and perhaps key factor is dialysis can only replace a part of kidney functions. As a short-term therapy, undoubtedly it is a good choice due to its obvious and quick effect.

2. Second, some PKD patients on dialysis may suffer from a variety of side effects, such as headache, nausea, vomiting, fever, swelling, low blood pressure, etc. All of them seriously affect patients’ life, especially in the night, patients even can’t go to sleep all through the night.

3. Finally, honestly speaking, long-term dialysis will delay the condition and even miss the best treatment time of PKD patients.

The life expectancy of PKD after quitting dialysis

Generally speaking, there is no a certain answer to this question which needs to depend on several things, not the least of which is stronger. Patients who are in poor condition, they don’t usually live longer than a week after quitting dialysis while who still have some kidney function may live as long as month.
