Question: What is the approximate lifespan of someone with stage 3 kidney failure? Also has been diagnosed with Extramedullary plasmacytoma, multiple myeloma. He also has high blood pressure, diabetes and has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma (extramedullary) plasmacytoma. The conditions have not been properly explained in "real" words that we can understand. Please help.

Answer: I happened to be looking up the approximate lifespan of someone with stage 3 kidney disease last night. What I found on the internet, and I don't remember the source, is that someone with stage 3 CKD has a 50 - 50 chance of being on dialysis in 5 years. On dialysis, they may live a year or two longer. However, I read a review of "Coping with Kidney Disease: A 12-Step Treatment Program to Help You Avoid Dialysis" by Mackenze Walser. Walser had quite a bit of success of prolonging kidney patients lives and keeping them off dialysis for years after their prognosis would put them there, via a low protein diet supplemented with certain amino acids. One of the reviewers wrote, "After being diagnosed with CKD 18 months ago (stage 3)I did a lot of research on diet, etc. and happened upon Dr. Walser's book. With the approval of my nephrologist, I started using the amino acid suppliments in place of most of my dietary protein. My GFR went from 45 to 75 in three months. Very heartening!" Here's the link to the book at Amazon. The results are very heartening indeed:ā€¦
