What Does GFR Level of 11 Mean

What Does GFR Level of 11 MeanWhat does GFR level of 11 mean? In medicine, GFR (Glomerular Filtraiton Rate) is an indicator for kidney condition. GFR 11 is a very low level, which means end stage renal failure. It is a very dangerous condition, but there is way to raise it.

Normally, GFR should is higher than 90 and it means kidneys are able to work well to get blood cleansed in certain time. Decrease of GFR level means declining of kidney function. Internationally, chronic kidney disease is divided into 5 stages according to GFR. And usually, the lower the GFR, the poorer the kidney function. GFR 11 is a very low level, which means end stage kidney failure. In such a case, kidneys have lost almost all their function, and to make sure the safety of life, medical measurement is usually needed at this time.

For one who has low GFR level of 11, dialysis is recommended to replace failed kidneys to cleanse blood. Dialysis is a renal replacement method, not a real treatment to repair kidney damages, so we should not expect improvement of kidney function after dialysis. Additional, as dialysis can cause life-threatening complications, so survival rate of dialysis patients decrease over time.

Dialysis is an option for these whose GFR is as low as 11, but it is not a must. GFR describes flow rate of blood cleansed by kidney, so by increasing kidneys’ ability of filtering blood, GFR can be increased. Also, dialysis can be delayed or avoided.

In China, for kidney failure patients who still have good urine output, they are usually treated with a systematic Chinese herbal treatment, which is composed of four Chinese therapies: Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Foot Bath and Medicinal Soup. This systematic herbal treatment is applied because it can repair injured kidney intrinsic cells, promote blood flow in kidney, improve blood circulation in kidney, strengthen healthy kidney tissues and nourish kidney intrinsic cells. For these whose GFR is successfully increased to 15 from 11, dialysis can be avoided.

This systematic herbal treatment is very effective in improving kidney function and raising GFR, but the problem is it is only available in China. It is not a simple oral medicine or a simple treatment, but a comprehensive treatment method made based on patients’ specific illness condition. Chinese herbs used in this treatment might be different from case to case, which is due to different physical condition and kidney condition. Thus, if you want to take this treatment to raise your GFR level to be higher than 11, I am afraid you need to come to China.
