"I was diagnosed with Glomerulonephritis in 2003, received a kidney transplant in 2005 and began to experience transplant rejection in October of 2011. Currently, I am undergoing dialysis 3x per week (since January). I was wondering if there is any alternative treatment for my condition." This is a message left on our site by a patient with failed kidney transplant. Based on the above description, our doctor give reply as below.
In general, GFR should reduce at the speed of 4-12 (the normal range is 80-120), so it needs 10-20 years for a Nephritis aggravates into Kidney Failure. However, you was diagnosed in 2003, but received a kidney transplant 2 years later. Your disease should be at the acute progressive stage in the beginning, but you did not find out the acute factors, then miss the best time for curing the disease. Usually, a new transplanted kidney can survive for about 10 years, but you started dialysis earlier. So till now, the progressive factors are still out of control.
Dialysis can help remove toxins out of your body, but it cannot improve the kidney function. Only when your kidney function is improved to 15, it is possible for you to avoid a second kidney transplant. When the kidney function improves for more than 20, you have the chance to stop dialysis. We meet many similar cases, many of them can have good effects, so don't worry.
There are two ways for improving your kidney function:
On one hand, I think your original kidneys are still in the body, so there should be some healthy renal cells we can save.
On the other hand, if you still have urine, that is, there are still kidney cells are working.
It is right for you to choose regular dialysis for it can protect some kidney functions, which establishes good basis for your treatment. There are great hope for you if you take timely treatment. Specific treatment plan will be made after a comprehensive analysis of your condition. For further contact, you can send an E-mail to email@example.com .
