Treatment for Low GFR in Stage 4 Kidney Disease

2014-02-14 11:43

GFR is one of important parameters in measuring how well kidneys are functioning. A low GFR is a typical sign of kidney disease. What is the treatment for low GFR in stage 4 kidney disease?

Low GFR in stage 4 kidney disease

GFR measures how much blood is filtered by glomeruli each minute. Glomeruli are the basic functional units of kidneys and each kidney is composed of hundreds of glomeruli. When blood flows through glomeruli, the waste products will pass through them and end up in urine. The filtered blood will flow back to systemic blood circulation. The normal GFR level is between 90-125ml/min.

However, in stage 4 kidney disease, more than 50% of glomeruli become impaired. As a result, less blood is filtered by glomeruli, resulting in low GFR. A person with stage 4 kidney disease has a GFR of 15-29ml/min.

Treatment for stage 4 kidney disease with low GFR

The first treatment step is to control the underlying cause of kidney damage. This can slow down renal function decline.

To increase low GFR in stage 4 kidney disease, a treatment should be applied to increase the blood supply to kidneys and restore the impaired glomeruli.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is the recommended treatment for stage 4 kidney disease with low GFR. On one hand, the effective medicines can dilate blood vessels to improve blood circulation. Increased blood flow can elevate low GFR to some extent.

On the other hand, the effective medicine ingredients can stimulate the self-repairing of the impaired glomeruli. If the damage to glomeruli can be reversed, GFR will be increased fundamentally.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is an external application of Chinese herbal medicines. As no chemical drugs are applied in it, it is free of adverse effects on body.
