    What Is the Highest GFR Level before Patients Need DialysisFor patients with kidney disease, GFR is an important aspect for patients with kidney disease to know their real condition,and it is also an important standard to decide whether it is necessary for patients to accept dialysis. As we know, the lower patient’s GFR is, the less normal kidney function patient has, and when patient’s GFR is low enough, they will need dialysis. Well then, what is the highest GFR before patients need dialysis?

    When will patients need dialysis?

    Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, and it will be needed when patient’s kidney function is so low that patient’s body can not bear the wastes and toxins that have accumulated in their body. For most patients, their doctors will recommend them to take dialysis when they have 15% remaining kidney function.

    On the other hand, kidney has the function of regulating the metabolic balances of fluid, electrolytes and acid-base, and the metabolic disorders of them can cause many health problems, like itching, renal osteopathy, heart disease, etc. In fact, if patients have severe complications caused by these metabolic disorders, they will also need dialysis to correct the imbalances in their body.

    What Is the Highest GFR Level before Patients Need Dialysis?

    As we have said, patients will be recommended to accept dialysis when they have 15% remaining kidney function, and patients will also need dialysis when they have severe complications caused by metabolic disorders in their body.

    In fact, for healthy people, their GFR is about 120ml/min, and if patients have just 15% remaining kidney function, their GFR may be about 20ml/min, but it can also be affected by many factors, so there is not a accurate correspondence between GFR and remaining kidney function. Besides, if patients need to take dialysis due to severe complication in their body, their GFR will be higher at this point.
