How long can a person live if thier kidneys have shut down and they will not have dialysys?

DR. Raed
well it really depends on many factors like the metabolism rate of the body sort of food the patient eats the temperature of the body and the temperature of the surrounding also if there are any sort of other liver disease or any sort of infections but in general patient doesnt survive for a long period and even befor dieing they get into a coma due to the accumolation of toxic materials in the brain and liver in general you can say from 3 days to a week

fed up
Not very long at all.

Kelly V

i'm sorry, but not very long.

wow not long. I hope you or whoever gets better.

Im sry to say but not for very long without the kidneys functioning properly the body is unable to get rid of excess fluids and waste products that are removed thru the kidneys. They will literally drown in their own body fluids.

about 17 hours

Weighty Questions
I'm a nurse on a general medical unit with a nephrology subspecialty. The longest I have seen someone live after STOPPING dialysis (they were on it but decided to stop the treatments) is about six weeks. It depends on whether they have any remaining kidney function and if so how much, what their comorbidities (other diseases) are, how long they were on dialysis, etc. I've never seen someone who stops dialysis die within 3 days. It's usually at least a week. There are other ways to bring down potassium levels besides dialysis, but eventually a high potassium causes muscle problems and the heart is a muscle... plus toxins build up in their system from not being able to filter waste through the kidneys. Outside the hospital, life without dialysis would be shorter because generally you don't have an IV site or access to other "advanced" treatments in a home setting or even in a nursing home.

Depends on the person and their condition, Imy grandmother lasted less than a week. She had a strong heart and lungs or she would not have lasted that long. Once her kidneys shut down, she went with the Angels very fast. I hope this is a school question and you aren't expierencing this with a loved one.

maybe a week depends on their other organs

Once your kidneys shut down and the body is not supported by artifical means such as dialysis the body can only survive about a week.
