After people fall into this stage, they will fell more uncomfortable. So some of them may wondering what is the life expectancy for them ? Actually, there is no need to worry about it. Because, with the help of proper treatment, your life span can be prolonged greatly. Dialysis and kidney transplant are the two common ways to prolong kidney disease patient’s life span, let us see some details about them.

Kidney transplantation is a life-extending procedure. The typical patient will live 10 to 15 years longer with a kidney transplant than if kept on dialysis. The increase in longevity is greater for younger patients, but even 75-year-old recipients (the oldest group for which there is data) gain an average four more years of life. People generally have more energy, a less restricted diet, and fewer complications with a kidney transplant than if they stay on conventional dialysis.
