    Does Dehydration Cause Low GFR

    2015-03-30 16:46| Font Size A A A

    Does Dehydration Cause Low GFRGFR, short for Glomerular Filtration Rate, is an indicator to reflect renal function. And kidney disease patients are prone to suffer from a low GFR. Actually, many factors can cause the condition, well then, does dehydration cause low GFR?

    TO be frank, a drop pf GFR can be caused by severe dehydration. Dehydration is a condition that can occur when the loss of body fluids, mostly water, exceeds the amount that is taken in. Due to the excessive loss of water, the blood volume reduces and thus blood pressure lowers. As a result, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) declines. However, mild dehydration normally does not affect GFR.

    Well then, how to deal with dehydration and low GFR?

    Dehydration can be treated by replenishing the fluid level in the body. This can be done by consuming clear fluids such as water. People who are dehydrated should avoid drinks containing caffeine such as coffee, tea and sodas. If reduced GFR level is just caused by the simple dehydration, using the mentioned above methods, GFR also can be improved largely.

    In addition to dehydration, many factors also contribute to leading to a low GFR.

    As I said at the beginning, a low GFR level is a common symptom for patients with kidney disease. Because of the decreased GFR, the kidney cannot discharge excessive wastes and toxins, including creatinine and urea nitrogen. That’s why people with dehydration may have a transient increase of creatinine level.

    In the condition, to improve low GFR level, it is important to repair kidney damage and recover renal function. Here, we recommend natural treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Blood Pollution Therapy, Foot Bath and so on to improve GFR and repair kidney damage.
