Dialysis may be recommended to some patients and it certainly plays vital role in extending patients’ life expectancy and improving patients’ life quality. What is the life expectancy of stage 4 kidney failure without dialysis.

Technically speaking, this is the 4th level of progression for kidney disease. As the second most advanced form of kidney disease, it closely borders with potentially imminent kidney failure. The primary gauge of assigning CKD stages is the glomerular filtration rate or GFR. For stage 4 patients, the GFR is measured at 15 to 30 ml/minute. If that’s your average filtration rate for the past 3 months, then you are definitely positive for stage 4 kidney disease.

There are different symptoms associated with this type of kidney disease. One of the most prominent ones is called uremia. This term is almost always used interchangeably with uricemia, as it denotes the accumulation of urea and other waste products that are otherwise excreted from the urine. That said, the increased amounts of these waste substances can affect the person’s other organs such as the heart, and can drastically affect one’s life expectancy. In fact, sometimes the complications can even kill you quicker than the kidney problem itself. Kidney pain is also more pronounced, and it may denote something beyond the decline of kidney efficiency. It can reflect other renal problems such as infections and/or polycystic kidney disease. When left unchecked, it can get you into deep trouble.
