Answer: You can probably live several days with basically no kidney function, but you will die eventually from all the waste build up. The sugar level of 20, not very long. a blood sugar under 50 is a medical emergency and requires intervention.
Answer: This depends on the level of fat and tissue around your kidney, for example if you were very fat then the level of tissue could get in the way of the surgeons knife and could result in the severcation of the vessels. DO NOT LET THIS MAKE YOU DOWN HEARTED!!!! it is one of te safest procedures ever and the chances of a surgeon messing it up are very very very low. In fact you are probably doing the best thing you can do. Just think that you are saving someones life!!!!
There are risks involved with even the most simple of surgeries. The removal of a kidney is no different. While the risks of a spinal stroke are low, they are still there. However, I am not sure what you mean by a spinal stroke. Strokes happen in the brain. What you may be thinking of is a bleed or blood clot in the spinal column. Once again, this is very small risk. The best advice I can tell you is to talk to your doctor not what random people off the internet tell you.
Nothing is wrong. One cable runs from the alternator directly to the ungrounded post of the battery, without any need of going through the key switch. For this wire to become "dead", one of the cables to the battery must be unhooked.
Answer: No. Dialysis is not necessary for kidney stone treatment. In most cases, the doctor may either perform lithotripsy, which is using sound waves to make the stone explode/dissolve, or go up the urethra with a small tube to grab the stones. If this is not an option, the doctor will treat the pain involved with the stones with prescription pain killers. Kidney stones are only a serious health risk if they are causing blockage, and in most cases pain is the only real problem involved with them.
Answer: People can live a normal length of time after the transplant. How ling they will live is mostly determined by how old they are at the time, their general health other than the kidney disease, and how they do with the transplant.
Answer: Yes, There are micro-chinese medicine and stem cell transplant in shijiazhuang kidney disease hospital. Micro-chinese medicine due to Traditional chinese medicine, At same time, Traditional chinese medicine have 5000 histroy. And Micro-chinese medicine have no side effect. And it get together stem cell transplant. They are very useful to kidney restore.
Answer: I am not a doctor but I do have my mother who has PKD. Both her kidneys failed when she was 48 years old. She is now almost 71 years old and goes for dialysis treatments 3 times a week. I know this does not answer the question, for I believe each individual is different with different cases, I am just going by my mom. My brother and I also have the disease and we are good. If kidneys fail there are alternatives these days, whether dialysis, or kidney transplant. You can live as long as you stay healthy and go for checkups and stuff.
Answer: This entirely depends on the patient, and what treatment options are available. From what you have said, it sounds like this person may have ESRD (end-stage renal disease). The main treatments for this are dialysis, or transplant. Which treatment option the doctors will choose depends on the general health of the individual, and the relative chance of success. Unfortunately, it will be very hard for anyone to answer your question given that they do not know the patient or their medical background.
However, I have pulled off some generic statistics for you to take a look at. From my understanding as a medical student, chance of success tends to decrease with age.
Dialysis survival (%) 1 year (2005-2006): 78.7 2 years (2004-2006): 64.3 5 years (2001-2006): 33.1 10 years (1996-2006): 10.3 Patient survival following deceased-donor transplant (%) 1 year (2005-2006): 94.1 2 years (2004-2006): 91.7 5 years (2001-2006): 80.2 10 years (1996-2006): 60.9 Patient survival following living-donor transplant (%) 1 year (2005-2006): 98 2 years (2004-2006): 96.5 5 years (2001-2006): 89.9 10 years (1996-2006): 77.3
I have also found this extract, which outlines the prospect of survival if the patient chooses to have neither a transplant, nor dialysis.
However, when there is kidney failure in elderly, many of them do not want to have dialysis. So, how long can an elderly live without dialysis? Well it all depends on how severe the kidney damage is. If the elderly person is passing fair amount of urine, he can live without dialysis for 2 to 6 weeks. However, if the person is passing little or no urine, then the survival rate decreases dramatically to 10 to 14 days. Most elderly who do not want dialysis after kidney failure suffer from a lot of side effects, namely nausea, twitching of the muscles and breathlessness. Although the elderly person might experience some pain, it is not a major symptom. If the elderly person wants to die at home, it can be arranged by the family members. There are many hospices who also take on elderly patients who do not want dialysis. Kidney failure in elderly is quite common so many hospitals are also equipped to help those elderly patients who do not want dialysis.
