How To Stop Further Decline of GFR

How To Stop Further Decline of GFRDecreasing GFR is really a concern for all the kidney disease patients, as it may mean dialysis is needed in near future. In general, dialysis is needed at any time when GFR is lower than 15. Well then, what can we do to stop further decline of GFR, so that we can avoid dialysis successfully?

-What is GFR?

GFR stands for Glomerular Filtration Rate which estimates how much blood passes through the kidney in unit time. For a healthy individual, the GFR should be higher than 90 and meanwhile lower than 130.

-What does the decline of GFR mean?

Since GFR describe how much blood passes through kidney in unit time, decline of GFR means less and less blood are flowing through kidney. Kidney is the natural filter of our body and decreasing GFR indicates decline of renal filtration function.

-Why does GFR decline?

Kidney filters blood through glomeruli and renal tubules, where most of the wastes and unwanted fluid can be removed out of the body as urine. When kidney tissues are damaged and become necrotic, there will be scars in kidney. Under such a condition, kidneys will not be able to filter blood as well as they did before.

-How to stop further decline of GFR?

GFR declines when more and more kidney tissues fail to function well, so if we want to stop further decline of GFR, we need to firstly protect residual kidney tissues. Many conditions like long-term high blood pressure, high blood sugar and inflammation can result in damages on kidney, so we need to bring these condition under control.

Besides, there is heavy burden on residual kidney tissues when GFR becomes very long. Under such a condition, we need to repair some injured kidney intrinsic cells with effective treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Blood Pollution Therapy, so as to increase kidney function and reduce the burden on residual kidney tissues. In this way, not only further decline of GFR can be stopped, there is also chance to have low GFR improved.
