Kidneys shut down is a condition that the kidneys fail to function normally, so they can not filter blood, keep the acid-base balance, and secrete necessary hormones. Actually, the life expectancy of people with shutdown kidneys varies from patient to patient. It depends on many factors, among which the most important factor is treatment method. With effective method, the function of shutdown kidneys can recover, so patients can live a relatively long life.
Approximately 95% of kidney shutdown cases are caused due to immune
abnormality or immune dysfunction. In this case, excessive inflammatory response
will appear, during which more and more immune complexes are generated and then
deposits in the kidneys through blood circulation. Over time, the kidneys
shutdown are caused.

restrain suppress the abnormal immune reaction, clear up the immune complex
deposition, restore the renal function, and regulate the immune system. Through
recovering the function of the shutdown kidneys from the underlying causes,
patients will certainly live a prolonged live.
