Low GFR 48 with High Creatinine And BUN

2013-09-25 15:58

GFR,creatinine,and BUN are three important indexes in reflecting how well your kidneys are functioning.How to manage low GFR 48 with high creatinine and BUN?

GFR 48

GFR measures how much blood is filtered by glomeruli in kidneys.The normal result of GFR is between 90~125ml/min.It is a very sensitive value in measuring renal function.When the glomeruli are impaired,less fluid will flow through kidneys,thus resulting in lower GFR.GFR 48 indicates moderated kidney damage.

High creatinine and BUN

Creatinine is the byproduct of creatine which is a major part in muscle. The extra creatinine is eliminated by kidneys so the serum creatinine can keep at a constant leve between 0.6~1.3mg/dL.However,when kidneys become impaired,high levels of creatinine will accumulate in blood, resulting in high creatinine.

Urea nitrogen is what forms when protein breaks down.It is also eliminated out of body by kidneys.However,high levels of urea nitrogen will build up in body when the kidneys fail to function adequately.If high levels of urea nitrogen build up in body,it can result in uremia,a disorder with a host of symptoms like bone disease,anemia,fatigue etc.

How to improve GFR 48 and lower high creatinine and BUN?

A balanced diet,medications and other conventional treatments can help improve GFR and lower high creatinine and BUN to relive symptoms of kidney disease.However, they can not control the underlying causes.

As mentioned above,low GFR and high levels of creatinine and BUN result from kidney damage and reduced renal function.Therefore, to improve GFR 48 and lower high creatinine and BUN,the patients should have treatment to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function. If the treatment goals can be attained, the condition will be controlled completely and fundamentally.
