    How serious is a GFR 14For patients with kidney disease, creatinine is an important standard to assess their kidney function. Patient’s kidneyfunvtion will be damaged by their disease, and their GFR will be lowered gradually in this process. Well then, if patients with kidney diasesae have a GFR level 14, how seious is it?

    What does GFR 14 indicate?

    GFR refers to how much blood has been filtered by kidney in unit time. For healthy people, their GFR can reach 120ml/min, so if patients with kidney disease has GFR 14, that means their GFR level is very low, which indicates patient’s kidney function is damaged severely.

    in fact, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages according to patient’s GFR. When patient’s GFR is reduced to 14, that means patient is in stage 5, of which its GFR range is below 15ml/min.

    How serious is GFR 14?

    As we have said, patients with GFR 14 begin to be in CKD stage 5, which is the most severe stage of CKD. Kidney is an important organ for our body health, which is in charge of regulating our internal metabolic balances by filtrating out the metabolic wastes from our body. So, when patient’s kidney function is damaged severely, lots of metabolic wastes will accumulate in patient’s body, and patients can have many metabolic disorders, which can cause patients to have many health problems.

    For example, patients with GFR 14 can have severe complications like cardiovascular diseases, renal osteopathy, hypertension, etc. Besides, when patients are in CKD stage 5, nerve problems often appear in patients’ body, which can cause patients to have headache, dizziness, somnolence, etc.

    Besides, when patients are in CKD stage 5, most of them will need dialysis to correct their severe metabolic disorders, and kidney transplant is another choice to prolong patient’s lifetime. Thereby, patients with GFR 14 may begin to accept dialysis at this point.
