How Long Can I Live On 20% Kidney Function In Nephrotic Syndrome

How Long Can I Live On 20% Kidney Function With Nephrotic SyndromeHow long can I live on 20% kidney function with Nephrotic Syndrome? Recently, one gracious elder woman leave a message on our website. If you or your relatives also face this similar problem mentioned above, please read on and this passage will help you greatly.

What is the meaning of 20% kidney function in Nephrotic Syndrome?

Kidney is one of important organs in our body, which help maintain the balance of electrolyte, remove excessive toxins and liquids of the body, produce urine as well as make some hormones. However, 20% kidney function in nephrotic syndrome means that your kidney has been damaged seriously, in other words, kidneys can not finish the normal functions and your condition has developed into stage 4 kidney disease. If left uncontrolled, as kidney function continues to decline, you are more likely to face kidney failure soon. When kidney function drops to 15% or less, what is waiting for you may be the painful dialysis or kidney transplant.

How long can I live on 20% kidney function with Nephrotic Syndrome?

To be honest, individuals with 20% kidney function and nephrotic syndrome usually have different life span, even though their kidney works at the same level. This is because various factors like the severity of complications, symptoms, lifestyle, and whether taking correct treatments may affect the life expectancy. Therefore, if controlled well, nephrotic syndrome patients with 20% kidney function can still live a normal life, even several decades of years, otherwise, they have to begin dialysis in the near future. Of course, if you think dialysis or kidney transplant is the only way to change your illness conditions, you are probably wrong. Actually, Chinese herbal medicines are worth to try. Compared with western medicines, it has an outstanding superiority to increase kidney cell’s self-replication ability and transport more nutrition to the damaged cells. As a result, some cells can be repaired effectively and recover to work again, thus kidney function is improved largely.
