What Does It Mean with GFR 57GFR is short for glomerular filtration rate, which is often used to show how well the kidneys are working. What does it mean with GFR 57?

GFR 57 means you are in CKD stage 3.

According to GFR, kidney disease is classified into five stages. When your GFR is more than 90, you are in stage 1 CKD. When your GFR is 60-89, you are in stage 2 CKD. When your GFR is 30-59, you are in stage 3 CKD. When your GFR is 15-29, you are in stage 4 CKD. When your GFR is less than 14, you are in end stage renal failure. GFR 57 means you are in CKD stage 3.

GFR 57 means that you begin to have many symptoms and body malaise.

When GFR is more than 60, there are few symptoms so that you can hardly detect that you have kidney disease. When your GFR is 57, the damaged kidneys can not maintain the normal function of body and then many symptoms occur. For example, protein and red blood cells spill into the urine, leading to foamy urine and blood urine. Water may retain in your body, causing swelling. The synthesis of red blood cells reduces so that you may have anemia. Different kidney patients may have different symptoms. Space limited, so we do not list all the symptoms here.

GFR 57 also means it is possible for you to reverse the disease and live a normal life.

Now if you receive a proper treatment, it is possible for you to promote GFR 57 to GFR 60 so as to lead a normal life. Conventional treatment for CKD is just to control symptoms, but that is not enough, because it can not repair the damaged kidneys. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang and decoction can help you regulate the qi flowing through the channels, remove stasis and cleanse waste products so as to protect your kidneys from being damaged. They can also set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing.
