How Should Patients at Stage 4 of Kidney Failure Improve GFR

2014-03-01 14:02

How Should Patients at Stage 4 of Kidney Failure Improve GFRFor patients with kidney failure at stage 4, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is 15–29 mL/min/1.73m2. Kidney function decreases very severely and many complications can be caused at stage 4, such as high blood pressure, anemia, bone disease, cardiovascular problems, etc. In this case, patients at stage 4 should take active measures to improve GFR.

At stage 4 kidney failure, why does GFR drop very largely?

For healthy people, GFR is more than 90 mL/min/1.73m2, usually ranging from 90 to 125 mL/min/1.73m2. However, GFR with patients at stage 4 is 15-29, which is much lower than normal value. How does it happen? GFR describes that how much glomeruli in kidney can filter blood in a minute. At stage 4 of kidney failure, as more than 50% of glomeruli is damaged, the filtration of blood decreases. Thus, GFR drops very largely.

How can patients at stage 4 improve GFR?

From the above, we can know that glomeruli damage is the root of causing low GFR. Consequently, patients at stage 4 should repair glomeruli damage. Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy has good effects on kidney, and it can dilate blood vessels and promote blood circulation, which helps blood flow into glomeruli. It also has Anti-inflammatory property, anticoagulant function, resist blood viscosity and degradation of fibrosis, Blocking renal fibrosis progression. What is more, Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can repair the damaged glomeruli and recover kidney function, which improves the filtration of glomeruli. Thus, glomeruli filters more blood in a minute, making GFR elevate.

Besides, some other causes can affect GFR. High blood pressure can affect blood circulation and make much wastes deposit in the blood, which lowers GFR. Patients as stage 4 can use Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers to treat high blood pressure. They should also eat a low protein diet because protein can be decomposed into urea nitrogen, which is a waste. And they can eat more high quality protein food like lean meat, milk and eggs, which produce less wastes and supply patients with essential amino acid.

As a consequent, patients at stage 4 should also pay attention to treatment for high blood pressure and diet in daily life. In this way, patients at stage 4 kidney failure can lower creatinine level.
