Life Expectancy With Stage 5 PKD While Patient on DialysisDialysis is indeed a helpful method to prolong patient’s lifespan. But the life expectancy of Stage 5 PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), also called Kidney Failure patients on dialysis, is determined by many factors.

How long can Stage 5 PKD patients live on dialysis?

Life expectancy on dialysis can vary depending on your other medical conditions and how well you follow your treatment plan. Average life expectancy on dialysis is 5-10 years, however, many patients have lived well on dialysis for 20 or even 30 years. Talk to your healthcare team about how to take care of yourself and stay healthy on dialysis.

Will dialysis help treatment Polycystic Kidney Disease?

No. Dialysis does some of the work of healthy kidneys, but it does not treatment your kidney disease. You will need to have dialysis treatments for your whole life unless you are able to get a kidney transplant.

Are there any alternatives to dialysis for Stage 5 PKD?

Yes. Dialysis isn’t the only way to treat Kidney Failure, and isn’t the best way either. In our hospital, we treat kidney disease patients with natural traditional Chinese herbs. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, also called Full Bath Therapy, Foot Bath and Enema Therapy are commonly used to shrink kidney cyst as well as improve kidney function. As long as kidneys can work normally, patients can reduce dialysis.

In addition, a new treatment for Kidney Failure has widely used here. That is, Stem Cell Therapy. Stem cells can differentiate into many other stem cells with certain function. In our hospital, we can provide mesenchymal stem cells and umbilical cord blood stem cells.

All the above natural therapies can help Stage 5 PKD patients in a natural way. Any questions, please leave a message below or contact our doctors online directly.
