Is It Possible to Improve GFR 17 for PKD PatientsGlomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is an indication of the state of the kidney. According to GFR, we can tell which stage kidney disease you are in and what treatment you should receive. When GFR is only 17, it means you are in late stage 4 and you may be advised to prepare for dialysis and kidney transplant. Is it possible to improve GFR 17 for PKD patients so as to keep dialysis and kidney transplant away?

Lead a healthy lifestyle

Healthy lifestyle plays an important role in maintaining your kidney function. For example,

-you should follow a renal-friendly diet, such as low protein, low salt, high fiber and high vitamins diet. It does not only provide the nutrients your body needs, but also help you control symptoms.

-you should avoid strenuous exercise, waist twist, injury, etc. Those may cause cyst burst.

-you should prevent cold, infection and some other aliments, which may add insult to injury.

-give up smoking and alcohol.

Receive a comprehensive treatment

Conventional treatment for PKD is to control the symptoms you have, which may be helpful for you to slow down kidney damage. But it can not stop the growth of kidney cysts. Your declined kidney function mainly results from growing kidney cysts. If you want to improve GFR 17, you should cease their growth and repair the damaged parts of kidneys. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can suppress the proliferation of renal tubule epithelial cells and the secretion of lining cells so as to stop the enlargement. It can also speed up blood circulation and increase the permeability of cyst wall so that cyst fluid can be taken away from sacs and then discharged out of the body. In this way, the size of cysts gradually becomes small. There are also other therapies, such as Medicated Bath, Mai Kang and decoction to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol level, remove stasis and improve blood circulation so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After the comprehensive treatment, your GFR 17 can be promoted.

Is it possible to improve GFR 17 for PKD patients? Yes, it is possible. But you have to combine the above aspects together. Only in this way can you improve kidney function to the maximum.
