    Is It Dangerous If My GFR Is 72

    Is It Dangerous If My GFR Is 72For patients with kidney disease, GFR is an important way to learn about their condition. If patients have GFR 72, they may have this curiosity: is it dangerous?

    What is the normal GFR range?

    GFR refers to glomerular filtration rate, which means how much blood have been filtered by kidney in unit time. For healthy people, their GFR level can reach 120ml/min, and because GFR can be affected by many factors, if our GFR level is above 90ml/min, it will be thought normal.

    In fact, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages, and the GFR range of stage 1 is namely above 90ml/min. Thereby, it is not able to judge whether patient has kidney disease according to their GFR if their GFR level is above 90ml/min.

    Is it dangerous if my GFR is 72?

    There are about one million nephrons in our kidney, and patient’s kidney disease can damage the nephrons, which can reduce patient’s GFR.

    If patients have GFR 72, it means patients are in CKD stage 2, of which the GFR range is 60~89ml/min. As we can see, a part of normal kidney function has been damaged when patient’s GFR is this value. Well then, is it dangerous if patient’s GFR is 72?

    In fact, that depends on patient’s condition. For healthy people, their kidney function will also reduce when they are too old, which is caused by the decline of their metabolism. But if the decline of GFR is caused by chronic kidney disease, that will be dangerous, because chronic kidney disease is a progressive disease, and it can not be cured.

    On the other hand, our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. So, patients will not have obvious problems in their body if they have GFR 72, and patient’s condition can be well controlled in this stage. If patients can take effective measures to protect their kidney function and overall health at this point, patient may even be able to live a normal life.
