    2014-11-11 08:10| Font Size A A A

    How Long Do You Live with A GFR 26 in CKD Stage 4When diagnosed with Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease, the most concerned question is that how long can I live. Well then, how long do you live with a GFR 26?

    To answer the question, we should have a well understanding about what does GFR 26 mean.

    According to GFR (glomerular filtration rate), there are five stages of chronic kidney disease. At stage 4, it means that the severe kidney damage has formed. Compared to the normal kidney function (GFR 90-120), GFR 26 is too low which is unable to maintain normal work. At this stage, it is very important to slow the loss of kidney function by following your treatment plan and managing illness condition. If left untreated, dialysis or kidney transplant can be applied in the near future.

    Then, how long can I live with GFR 26?

    To be frank, there is no certain answer for the question. Because the illness condition is different from case to case. In other words, how long can you live with GFR 26 need to depend on your condition. Some people can live longer with a good condition while some people can not if their condition is more poorer. In order to get a good prognosis, effective treatment should be applied as early as possible.

    Well then, how to improve GFR 26 so as to prolong the lifespan?

    Proper Diet and healthy lifestyles play significant roles in improving glomerular filtration rate and protecting remaining function. But simply dietary limitation is far from enough to stop the progression of stage 4 kidney disease from the underlying causes. Then, how?

    In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended to you. Different from Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is an external application of herbal medicines under the help of osmosis device. The treatment has shown a good effect on dilating blood vessels, reducing inflammation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing nutrients and so on. In this way, the extra wastes in the body can be discharged from the body. And kidney damaged can be repaired gradually and GFR can be improved. Thus, the lifespan of patients can be prolonged and guaranteed.
