Does 18 GFR Mean A Person Will Have DialysisDoes 18 Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) mean a person will have dialysis? GFR 18 indicates your kidney disease has progressed into stage 4. If your kidney function continues to decline to below 15%, you will need to begin dialysis to stay alive. With GFR 18, there is still great hope to prevent dialysis as long as you take early treatment to protect residual kidney function.

First, follow a proper and scientific diet

A proper and scientific diet is important to slow the progression of your disease. You are suggested to follow a diet with low sodium, low phosphorus and potassium, low but high quality protein. However, since medical condition is different from person to person, diet will change with medical condition. Thus, if you want to know your specific medical condition, you need to send mail to kidneycares@hotmail.com with your detailed illness information. After analyzing it, our kidney doctor will reply you as soon as possible within 24 hours.

Second, protect your remaining kidney function tissues from damage and repair damaged kidney cells

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Clear Blood Therapy To achieve these goals.

Clear Blood Therapy can purify blood, improve blood circulation and rebuild kidney structure. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can dilate blood vessels, provide enough blood and oxygen for recovery of damaged kidney cells, and prevent the relapse of kidney disease. After a period of treatment, your overall health condition can be improved successfully and you have no need to take dialysis.

Whether GFR 18 requires dialysis or not depends on many factors. If you want to learn more information, welcome to consult our online doctor or leave a message below.
