The treatment of CKD depends on the underlying condition, and the presence of issues and severity of proteinuria, hypertension, etc.

Only in severe conditions, where the kidney disease is progressing rapidly, does the life expectancy is reduced.

Even in such cases, regular dialysis and procedures like renal transplantation can help to prolong life.

Life span after kidney transplant might last for 15 -20 years, depending on the need for immmunosuppression and if ‎there are no rejections.

Almost everyone feels that they have a better quality of life after the transplant. For those who receive a close ‎match, up to 90% are still alive after 1 year, and more than 70% are alive after 5 years. ‎

You might consult with a nephrologist along with all the medical reports and he may be able to review them and explain you in specific details about your current status and further management.
