In brief: A long time
Years ago, when patients were started on dialysis, they often had a limited life span.
Now, many patents live for years. The most important thing is to follow your doctor's advise for medications, diet and lifestyle changes to make sure that you stay as healthy as possible once dialysis has been started.
