Stage 5 PKD Life Expectancy Without DialysisPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is inherited. Most patients will experience hypertension and enlarged kidneys. Polycystic Kidney Disease usually appears no symptoms at the early stage. However, when it reaches stage 5, the end stage of PKD, patients always recommended dialysis or kidney transplant. However, without dialysis, what the life expectancy of stage 5 PKD will be?

Firstly, I would like to introduce you the five stages of Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Stage 1: Emergence Period. As PKD will be passed on to next generation, many people are born with it. The cysts is too small to be diagnosed. In general, people do not see any symptoms before 20 years old.

Stage 2: Growth Period. The cysts will have a rapid growth when people are 30-40 years old. Treatment in this period aims at stoping or preventing cysts from enlarging.

Stage 3: Enlarging Period. The cysts further grow, but still are less than 3cm. At this stage, many symptoms like back pain, flank pain, proteinuria, hematuria or hypertension appear. Timely treatments are needed immediately.

Stage 4: Rupturing Period. The cysts grows beyond 3cm and ruptures due to some outsides reasons. Hospitalization is required immediately.

Stage 5: Uremia. At this stage, most of the kidney function have lost. Large amounts of wastes and toxins accumulate inside the body, polluting the blood. Even other systems or organs will be affected.Without dialysis, the life expectancy of stage 5 PKD is limited. The complications like hypertension and infection may possibly cause death anytime.

Is there any treatment that can replace dialysis or kidney transplant? Fortunately, the answer is “yes”. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be the choice.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotheraoy is base on traditional Chinese medicines and modern technologies. It is more natural and effective, because it aims at improving kidney function instead of treating symptoms. You may as well try this therapy. Welcome your consultation.
