GFR 20 in stage 4 kidney disease

Nephrons are the basic functional units in kidneys.They can filter out extra fluid and wastes from body in right condition.However,there is a variety of conditions and diseases which can impair the nephrons and cause loss of nephrons. When less blood is filtered by kidneys,GFR will be lowered. GFR 20 in stage 4 kidney disease is associated with very serious kidney damage.

To improve GFR 20 in stage 4 kidney disease,the first treatment step is to figure out the causes of kidney damage. Effective control of the primary causes can stop further GFR decline.

To improve GFR 20 in stage 4 kidney disease,the most important treatment goal is to restore the impaired nephrons.If well-functioning nephrons can increase in number,the renal function will be improved.

If GFR decreases to 20 ml/min,a large amount of wastes and toxins will build up in body.The first treatment step is to purify blood by removing all kinds of toxins and wastes from blood. Therefore, it can create a favorable environment for repairing the impaired nephrons.

Then,it is to restore the impaired nephrons.If the impaired nephrons can be repaired, GFR will be increased. In this way, Dialysis will not be required.
