    How Can CKD Patient Increase His GFR To A Normal Level

    2014-05-24 08:02| Font Size A A A

    How To Increase GFR to A Normal LevelGFR is an important standard to learn about CKD patient’s kidney function, and patient’s GFR will be reduced gradually as patient’s kidney function is damaged slowly. Well then, for patients with CKD, how can they increase their GFR to a normal level?

    How does GFR indicate patient’s kidney function?

    GFR is the abbreviation of glomerular filtration rate, which indicates how much blood has been filtered by our kidneys in unit time. For health people, their GFR level can reach 120ml/min.

    While patient’s kidney disease can damage patient’s kidney structure gradually, which will damage the nephrons in patient’s kidney and reduce his GFR. The more nephrons are damaged, the lower GFR patient has.

    On the other hand, our GFR can be affected by many factors, and it is normal that patient’s GFR may be lowered due to some reasons. In fact, if patient’s GFR is higher than 90ml/min, that will be thought to be normal, which means patient is CKD stage 1 at this point.

    How can CKD patients increase their GFR to a normal level?

    Thereby, to reach patient’s GFR level, it is necessary to repair the damaged nephrons in patient’s kidney.

    However, there is no cure for CKD so far, and patient’s condition will be aggravated gradually in this process. In fact, patient’s GFR can be improved with right treatment and nursing care, but the later CKD stage patient is in, the harder it is to reverse patient’s stage. For example, if patient is in CKD stage 2, it is very likely to increase his GFR to normal range, but if patient is in CKD stage 3, that may can not be achieved. Nevertheless, patient’s GFR still can be increased obviously with right treatment and nursing care even if patient’s kidney function is damaged severely.

    To increase patient’s GFR, Chinese medicine will be a perfect choice, and it is very helpful for patients to regulate their diet and lifestyle.
