How Long Can You Live with 10% Kidney Function and IgA Nephropathy

How Long Can You Live with 10% Kidney Function and IgA NephropathyRecently an IgA Nephropathy patient told me that he has only 10 % kidney function and he wanted to know how long he can live. When you have 10% kidney function, your body will be in a mess if you do not receive treatment timely. Now let’s see more information about this topic.

You can live only few weeks without any treatment.

10% kidney function can not remove the waste from your body timely, as a result, toxins build up in the body, which causes damage to other organs and systems, such as heart. Death usually comes within a few weeks.

You can live 10-20 years if you do dialysis.

When you have only 10% kidney function, dialysis is usually need to remove waste and excess fluid from your body. Though dialysis can not treat kidney disease, it can prolong your life to 10-20 years. If you are no more than 65 years old, adequate dialysis can help you live very well, but you should pay attention to some of its complications such as heart disease and electrolyte disturbance, which are life-threatening.

You can live several years if you do kidney transplant.

Kidney transplant is also a common kidney replacement treatment for kidney failure. But the transplanted kidneys can only survive for only a few years. The survival rate of transplanted kidney is usually 85% for one year, and 60% for 5 years and 1 % for 10 years. When the kidneys fail, you may have to do dialysis or wait for another kidney transplant again. But kidney transplant can allow you to live a qualified life.

You can live a relatively normal and full life with Immunotherapy.

Immunotherapy can regulate the abnormal immune system for IgA Nephropathy. It can also cleanse waste and inflammatory factors from the blood and block abnormal immune reaction in the kidneys so as to protect your kidneys from being damaged further. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation to repair the damaged kidneys. When your kidney function is enhanced, you can get rid of dialysis and transplant and then you can live a normal life.

How long can you live with 10% kidney function depends on many other factors, such as age and current medical condition. If you want to know the exact answer, please contact online doctor.
