In brief: 5 years
It varies based on the patient other medical conditions.
But on the average the mortality rate (death rate) is 20% per year. However some patients who are young with fewer other associated medical conditions and who are compliant with their dialysis. Treatment could live over 10 to 20 years on dialysis

Unfortunately, 50% of hemodialysis patient die within 5 years.
Therefore it is very improtant that your kidney doctor stay on top of all of your underlying medical conditions especially any heart problems you may develop.
