How to Stop Steady Decline of GFR

how to stop steady decline of GFRSteady decline of GFR is very common among Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients and it means kidney function is declining. We are easily to die from various life-threatening complications when kidneys fail to cleanse our blood. Therefore, dialysis is required when GFR declines to a certain level. Well, how can we stop steady decline of GFR?

Why does GFR keeps declining in CKD?

The full name of GFR is Glomerular Filtration Rate which is an indicator of kidney function. Glomerular filtration is the process by which the kidneys filter the blood, removing excess wastes and unwanted fluid. GFR describe the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney. Low GFR means less and less blood is filtered by our kidney.

GFR declines when kidney function is impaired. Under such a circumstance, residual kidney tissues run heavy burden and they are easily damaged for this reason. In CKD, GFR keeps declining because more and more kidney tissues fail to work properly.

How to stop steady decline of GFR?

Dialysis is required generally when GFR is lower than 15, so if we want to avoid dialysis successfully, we must stop the steady decline of GFR.

As we have mentioned above, GFR declines when more and more kidney tissues fail to work properly, so as long as we can protect residual kidney tissues from being damaged, further decline of GFR and be stopped. Also, if we can repair some injured kidney tissues on the precondition of protecting residual kidney tissues, GFR can be improved successfully. In such a case, kidney disease can be reversed.

In many areas, CKD is treated by treating its symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria, swelling and hematuria. If you are taking such a treatment, dialysis and kidney transplant will finally the two options for you, as this kind of treatment only temporarily bring illness under control and we can not get chronic kidney problem cured just by treating its symptoms.

To get permanent solution, we must start from treating its underline cause. Only in this way, can further kidney damages be avoided and also can steady decline of GFR be stopped.
