    GFR 47.2ml/min of right kidney and GFR 9.82ml/min of left kidney, what does it meanKidney disease can damage patient’s kidney function by cause damage in there, and that can cause patients to have many changes in his lab tests, among which patients will find his GFR will be reduced. Well then, if a patient with CKD has GFR level 47.2ml/min in his right kidney and GFR 9.82ml/min in his left kidney, what does that mean?

    What does GFR mean?

    GFR refers to glomerular filtration rate, which reflects how much blood flow has been filtered by patient’s kidney in unit time.

    In each kidney, there are about one million nephrons, which are in charge of filtrating out the metabolic wastes and regulating the metabolic balances in our body. When patient’s kidney disease cause damage to these nephrons, patient’s kidney function will be reduced, and that will reflect as patient’s GFR decrease.

    What does this patient’s condition mean?

    If a patient has GFR 47.2ml/min in his right kidney and 9.82ml/min in his left kidney, that indicates patient’s kidney function is damaged moderately.

    For healthy people, their GFR can reach 120ml/min, and that indicates each kidney’s GFR can reach 60ml/min. As we can see, patient’s left kidney function is damaged much obviously than the right kidney. At this point, patient’s overall GFR is about 57ml/min, which indicates patient is in CKD stage 3, of which the GFR range is 30~60ml/min.

    In fact, patients with GFR level 57ml/min may have no obvious health problems at this point, because our kidney has strong metabolic ability and compensation, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, patients should take measures to protect their remaining kidney function, and their prognosis can be improved obviously at this point.

    Kidney disease is very dangerous, and it is necessary for patients to take measures to protect their remaining kidney function as early as possible.
