    What Does It Mean If My GFR Is 51

    2014-04-28 06:04| Font Size A A A

    What Does It Mean If My GFR Is 51Glomerular filtration rate is an important reflection of our kidney function, and it is an important standard for patients with kidney disease to learn about their condition. Well then, if patients with kidney disease have GFR level 51, what does that mean?

    What is GFR?

    GFR refers to how much blood has been filtered by kidney in unit time, and for healthy people, their GFR level can reach 120ml/min.

    For patients with kidney disease, their disease can damage the kidney structure, which will reduce their kidney function. As a result, blood can flow through kidney will be reduced in this process, which will cause patients to have a low GFR. As patient’s kidney damage becomes severer and severer, patient’s GFR will be lower and lower.

    In fact, when patient’s GFR is lower than 15ml/min, most patients will need dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong their lifetime.

    What does GFR level 51 mean?

    In fact, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages according to patient’s GFR, and if patient’s GFR is 51ml/min, that means patients are in CKD stage 3, of which the GFR range is 30~59ml/min.

    As we have said, healthy people’s GFR can reach 120ml/min, so it seems patient’s condition is very severe when he has GFR 51. However, our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, if patient has half normal kidney function, there will not be any healthy problem caused by kidney damage.

    For patients with GFR 51, their damaged kidney function has been more than half, so there may be some health problems caused by their kidney damage at this point. But patient’s overall condition is not too severe at this point.

    Kidney disease is very dangerous, and patients should take measures to deal with their condition as early as possible, so patients with GFR 51 should do their best to improve their condition at this point.
