Daily Protein Intake For A Person With A GFR 25

2016-01-06 03:18

A Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is a condition of stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). It has been a severe kidney damage. Aside from some medical treatments, diet also has a huge influence on the kidneys’ function. Protein is able to heal injury, stop bleeding or fight infection. However, patients with CKD are often faced with the dilemma of having to limit protein intake. Well, how much protein should be consumed by a person with GFR 25?

Protein and the CKD patient

When protein is consumed, protein waste products will be created. Healthy kidneys can remove them from the body in the urine. However, unhealthy kidneys lose the ability to remove protein waste and it starts to build up in blood. Dietary protein intake for CKD patients is based on the stage of kidney disease, nutrition status and body size.

Protein and a GFR 25

GFR 25 indicates stage 4 kidney disease. Although stage 4 indicates a severe decrease in your kidney function, you can still live without dialysis. Because there is no cure for kidney disease, the key point is to keep you nourished and reduce protein waste build up. In stage 4 of CKD, you need to reduce protein to 10 percent of daily calorie intake.

It is difficult to get exact intake, the goal is to consistently be close to your goals. Besides, it is also important to make sure you are eating enough calorie. If your calorie intake is too low, your body will use the protein you intake for energy. Remember these numbers will change depending on your weight, gender and the stages of kidney disease.

The following is a sample daily intakes for early kidney insufficiency

Sample Daily Intake For Early Kidney Insufficiency
body weight (pounds) protein (grams) calories
100 25-27 1600
125 31-34 2000
150 38-41 2400
175 44-47 2800
200 50-54 3200
