4 Factors that Affect the Survival Rate of Transplanted KidneyKidney transplantation, compared with dialysis, keeps patients away from dialysis machines and prevents toxins from being accumulated again. Therefore, it is generally believed that kidney transplant can help promote life quality.

In fact, kidney transplant can bring hope to kidney failure patients, but the transplanted kidney can only survival several years. Here are 4 factors that affect the survival rate of transplant kidney.

1. Rejection reaction

Similar to other organ transplants, 60 percent of kidney transplant patients have kidney loss due to rejection. To inhibit this adverse reaction, immunosuppressants are mainly used. With the development of science and technology, there will be more new drugs to deal with such problems in the future.

2. Polyomavirus Infections

The emergence of polyomavirus infection is related to the low immunity of kidney transplant patients, because the patients have to take immunosuppressive agents due to rejection, resulting in decreased immunity. Polyomavirus infection occurs in about 10% of kidney transplant recipients.

It is suggested that patients can take some drugs to enhance their immunity, such as folic acid, vitamin C tablets, and pay attention to exercise.

3. Relapse of primary disease

In fact, even if the kidney transplantation is successful, some patients will still experience the recurrence of primary kidney disease. The common pathological types include chronic glomerulonephritis and Diabetic Nephropathy. For this point, patients should pay more attention to regular reexamination. If there is any problem, solve it as soon as possible.

4. Negligent

Many successful kidney transplant patients do not pay attention to reexamination and medication after the surgery. This is also one of the factors that make you lose the transplanted kidney.

Even if your transplanted kidney fail to work, your life is not threatened, because you can start dialysis or do second transplant to maintain your life. To improve the survival rate, besides the four factors, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment, which is a systemic treatment to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing.
