    Can I Increase GFR 43 to Normal Range

    2014-04-14 07:46| Font Size A A A

    Can I Increase GFR 43 to Normal RangeGFR 43 means patient’s kidney function is damaged moderately, and it is not very hard for patients to control their condition at this point. For patients with kidney disease, GFR is an important aspect to learn about their kidney function. So, if patient’s GFR can be improved, that has significant meaning to patient’s overall condition.

    Well then, if patients have GFR level 43, how can they improve their GFR to normal range?

    What is considered as the normal GFR range?

    GFR means how much blood have been filtrated by kidney, and for healthy people, their GFR level can reach 120ml/min. In fact, because GFR can also be affected by many factors, so if people’s GFR level is more than 90ml/min, it will be considered as normal.

    In fact, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages, and this chart is how the five stages are divided:

    Stage 1  stage 2  stage 3  stage 4  stage 5
    ≥90ml/min 60~89ml/min 60~89ml/min 15~30ml/min <15ml/min

    Thereby, patients with GFR level 43 are in CKD stage 3, which means patient’s kidney function is damaged moderately.

    Can GFR 43 be improved to normal range?

    Chronic kidney disease is a progressive disease, and nephrons in patient’s kidney will be damaged gradually. In fact, chronic kidney disease has no cure so far, and patient’s kidney function will be reduced gradually. Thereby, there is little possibility for patients with GFR 43 to have normal GFR range.

    On the other hand, the decrease of GFR is due to the increase of damaged nephrons, and lots of nephrons are just in a damaged state. With appropriate treatment, a large percentage of nephrons can be repaired, and patient’s GFR will be improved as well, and that is very helpful for patients to protect their condition.

    As we know, kidney disease is very dangerous, and it is necessary for patients to do what they can to improve their condition. If you have any trouble, you can leave us a message about your problem and details, and we will do what we can to help you.
