Life Expectancy Of GFR 15 In IgA Nephropathy

In addition to the creatinine level, GFR also is considered as a common indicator to reflect how well the kidney function works in clinical treatment. GFR 15 in IgA nephropathy, it indicates that patients’ kidney function has markedly declined, if left untreated, the condition is more likely to develop into kidney failure, and finally, patients may meet death. In such a serious situation, the life expectancy of GFR 15 in IgA nephropathy becomes the biggest concern among patients.

Here, we divide it into three conditions based on the treatment patients may use.

1. The life expectancy of dialysis

Dialysis is a common treatment of various kidney diseases especially in patients with less than 10% kidney function and less than 15 of GFR. According to the clinical study, in general, one-year survival rate for dialysis patients with GFR 15 in IgA nephropathy to be around 80%, whereas the two-year, five-year, and ten-year survival rates are around 64%, 33% and 10% respectively. What is worse, for some patients whose illness condition is very serious, their life time may even shorter. So with the time decreases gradually, although dialysis may offer a better quality of life and extend the survival, many patients eager to get rid of it and want to search for another alternative treatment.

2. The life expectancy of kidney transplant

In addition to dialysis, kidney transplant must come to your mind firstly. Actually, 1 year after kidney transplant, the life span of the transplanted kidneys is about 92%, after 5 years, it is 80% and after 10 years it is 54%. Compared with dialysis, these figures are indeed so tempting. But not every patient is able to live as long as it shows. So, please talk with our online doctors to know more details about kidney transplant.

3. Life expectancy of GFR 15 in IgA nephropathy with Chinese herbal medicines

It is proved that Chinese herbal medicine is the best for these patients for the purpose of repairing damaged kidney and improving kidney function from the root. Besides, it will prolong the life span to a large degree. If you have interest to know more, feel free to send us an email to igacure@gmail.com.
