Expert Answer

As we know, both hypertension and diabetes are two main causes of kidney disease, and the stage 4 kidney disease means the kidneys have been damaged severely. In this condition, patients will have some severe symptoms with their disease, such as protein in urine, blood in urine, swelling, high blood pressure, loss of appetite, anemia, etc. In stage 4 kidney disease, the GFR level is 15-29 ml/min/1.73m2, and when the GFR level is less than 15 ml/min, patients will be recommended to take dialysis.

In fact, no one can tell the specific time that one can live with the stage 4 kidney disease without dialysis, because the specific illness condition will be different from case to case. But there are also some factors will affect the life expectancy for stage 4 patients with hypertension and diabetes.

- Age

The older the patients are, the higher risks they will have with their disease, so the old patients may have a bad prognosis if they have some severe diseases, such as heart problem, etc.

- Symptoms

If patients have some severe symptoms and cant control well, they will have a bad prognosis.

- Treatment

If patients don’t take any treatment, or the treatment cant help improve the kidney function for patients, they will quickly get into end stage of kidney disease and have a bad prognosis.

So how long stage 4 kidney disease patients can live all depends on their own illness condition and the treatment they have. If you still have any questions after reading, you can ask online doctor, or you can also leave a message below. We will do our good to help you.
