How to Improve GFR in Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure

2013-12-27 11:27

Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a very sensitive index in measuring how your kidneys are functioning.A person with stage 4 chronic kidney failure has GFR between 15-29ml/min.If GFR can be improved, the patients will prevent the onset of dialysis. How to improve GFR in stage 4 chronic kidney failure?

Increase renal blood flow

GFR measures how much blood is filtered by glomeruli in kidneys. Increasing renal blood flow is an effective way to increase GFR. Chinese herbal medicines can dilate blood vessels and eliminate thrombus and inflammatory factors,thus improving blood circulation.If more blood is supplied to kidneys,GFR will be elevated.

Restore impaired kidney structure

Renal intrinsic cells are the basic units of kidneys and the kidney is composed of five kinds of cells.In stage 4 chronic kidney failure,a large number of renal intrinsic cells become impaired and necrotic.To reverse the impaired kidney structure,the underlying treatment goal is to restore impaired and necrotic cells.Stem Cell Therapy can improve GFR fundamentally by replacing the necrotic cells with new ones. You can email to kidneycares@hotmail.com  to get more information about the therapy.
