    What Does It Mean If You Have A Low GFR

    2014-12-09 07:04| Font Size A A A

    What Does It Mean If You Have A Low GFRGlomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is one correct “tool” to measure how well your kidneys are functioning. Generally speaking, the higher GFR, the better kidney function. However, if you are told that you have a low GFR, you may have no idea about what dose it mean. Now, let’s discuss what does it mean if you have a low GFR.

    As I said at the beginning, GFR is a reliable indicator to reflect kidney function. And according to GFR, kidney disease is divided into five stages as following:

    Stage 1 Chronic Kidney Disease: GFR >90

    Stage 2 Chronic Kidney Disease: 60≤GFR≤89

    Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease: 30≤GFR≤59

    Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease: 15≤GFR≤29

    Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease: GFR<14

    In general, the normal GFR levels are between 90-120ml/min, but these values may change with age. Even though, if your GFR level is lower than normal level, it means that there is something wrong with your kidneys and the impaired kidneys has lost their abilities more and less. In the condition, your kidney will fail to function well. Along with the decline of GFR, your kidney disease will become more and more serious. I am sure that you can find out how severe your medical condition is according to the above GFR levels. Generally speaking, the lower your GFR, the worse your condition is. Improving renal function can come true through natural treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy, etc. More detailed info, please mail to or contact our online doctors directly.

    What’s more, compared to creatinine level, BUN (blood urea nitrogen) level, proteinuria, Glomerular filtration rate can be more accurate to determine which kidney disease stages of you are. All in all, if you have diagnosed with a low GFR level, you are suggested to take the effective treatment to improve your renal function. Otherwise, your kidney disease may deteriorate to Kidney Failure which is life-threatening disease. In the condition, you have to rely on dialysis or kidney transplant to spend your remaining life.
