How Long Can You Live After Starts Dialysis
The question “How long can I live after dialysis” can bring about a very sobering reality. But the answer depends on a wide range of variables.
The cause of kidney failure plays a huge role in the life expectancy for those on dialysis.

Dialysis can not treat disease from the root and it only can extend your life expectancy for a short time. Besides, it costs a lot which needs lots of financial and material resources if you receive it in the early time. Moreover, dialysis can also bring many complications such as vomiting and nausea which are dangerous to your body. However, if you miss the best dialysis time, you may lose the opportunity for longer expectancy due to uremia or other lethal complications. Therefore, it is important to know the time when you start dialysis.
