GFR 58 and Tired All the Time: How to Improve ItGFR is most common used test to measure how well your kidneys function. The higher the GFR, the better the kidney function. Under normal circumstance, GFR over 90 is considered normal unless there is other evidence of kidney disease. When your GFR declines, it may indicate there is something wrong with the kidneys. Recently a patient told me that his GFR is 58 and he gets tired all the time. How to improve it? Go on reading, you will find the answer.

First, let’s analyze this condition briefly.

According to GFR, chronic kidney disease is classified into five stages. GFR 58 means you are in stage 3. If you feel tired all the time, it may be caused by anemia. Healthy kidneys can make erythropoietin to stimulate the bone marrow to make the appropriate number of red blood cells. When the kidneys are not working properly, there is not enough erythropoietin. In this case, the blood will have a reduced number of red blood cells to transport oxygen to all the organs. You will have less energy to perform your usual activities when there is less oxygen supply to your heart and muscles.

Second, treatment suggestion to help you improve this condition.

-Erythropoietin and iron supplement can help you ease anemia. If your anemia is very serious, your doctor may prescribe such medications. You can also supplement iron from food such as spinach and iron-fortified cereals.

-Vitamin C helps the body absorb iron. Good sources of vitamin C are vegetables and fruits, such as cranberry, onion, pepper and oranges.

The most important thing to do is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. With improved kidney function, you will feel energetic. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has been proved by many kidney patients effective in treating kidney disease. If you want to have a try, please contact online doctor and then we will have further introduction to the treatment. Do not lose hope at any time.
