    Can GFR Be Improved with Diet

    2014-08-11 02:36| Font Size A A A

    Can GFR Be Improved with DietGFR is short for glomerular filtration rate and it is an important indicator to reflect renal function. Low GFR is very easy to occur in kidney disease, which can bring many symptoms and much pain for patients and their life. Well then, can GFR be improved with diet?

    As the saying goes, diet is just like double-edged sword. On the one hand, diet can delay even stop the progression of the illness condition if you have healthy eating habits, on the other hand, it also can worsen your condition if you have wrong eating.

    Low GFR refers that there is something wrong with your kidney. And the lower GFR level is, the more serious the kidney damage will be. And according to GFR, kidney disease is divided into five stages. The normal range of GFR is more than 90 ml/min, while the GFR of end stage renal disease is less than 15 ml/min. What’s more, patients may not experience no symptoms until the illness condition develops into three stage. Under this condition, Diet Therapy plays an important and necessary part in manage the development of kidney disease. What is the diet therapy for improving GFR?

    Low-protein diet

    Eating too much protein is a big burden for low GFR patients because the increased permeability of glomerular filtration membrane will leak out more protein and cause the further damage on kidneys. However, protein is the energy source of our body so you can eat food with high-quality protein to satisfy the body needs.

    Limit intake of sodium

    Limit the amount of sodium you consume. When your kidney health is poor, extra sodium and fluid will build up in your body which is bad for high blood pressure and swelling.

    Eat more fruits and vegetables

    Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables you consume. You can ingest much vitamins and energy through eating fresh fruits and vegetables.

    Drink relative water

    Increase the amount of water you consume unless you are on dialysis. Determine your best daily intake for fluid with your doctor. What I want to emphasize is that you should limit your fluid intake instead of increasing it if you have swelling or you are on dialysis based on your doctor’s recommendation.

    Only you have a friendly-kidney diet, can you improve low GFR. In addition, in serious condition, medical treatment is also necessary. If you have unclear things, please contact our doctors directly or email us to and we will give you an individualized advice.
