Do you or a loved one have kidney disease? If so, you may worry about how the condition will progress, what to expect, and how to continue living as well as possible. First, it’s important to know that people with kidney disease can survive for a long time and enjoy a good quality of life, with the right supports.
In some cases, kidney disease may progress to kidney failure — the most severe stage of the condition. This is also known as end-stage kidney disease or end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
End stage renal disease (ESRD), or renal failure, is the end stage of kidney function—not the end stage of life. Also called stage 5 of CKD, ESRD indicates that both kidneys are no longer working sufficiently to keep your body healthy and chemically balanced. If you haven't already decided on an ESRD treatment, discuss your options with your doctor so you can make an informed decision when the time comes.
Once your chronic kidney disease has become end-stage, you'll need to either receive a kidney transplant or undergo dialysis continually. Without dialysis or a transplant, life expectancy for those with ESRD is usually only several months.
1. For dialysis, it is the common treatment that patients choose. Because the cost is not too high and it is convenient. But you maybe will be hooked on this machine and survival from it. Finally your condition become worse and worse. Many patients died not because kidney disease but the complications like heart failure, anemia, heavy swelling...
2. After you've received a kidney transplant, you'll need several weeks to recover. You'll also need to take immunosuppressant medicine daily after your transplant to help prevent your body from rejecting the new kidney.
3.If you don’t want both of them, you can choose conservative treatment- Chinese medicine treatment. Different from dialysis, this treatment has no side effect and can repair kidney cells, improve kidney function,give you a higher quality of life. If you are interested, please contact us freely.
