In brief: Txp, dialysis, death

End-stage renal disease is defined as insufficient kidney function to support life.
The time frame within which life will end varies depending on how the patient restricts intake of fluids + products (like potassium) that are managed by the kidneys. If no treatment is provided (or accepted by the patient), death will eventually occur. The only 2 treatment options are dialysis or transplantation.
