2014-02-21 11:15

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) refers to progressive loss of renal function. GFR is an important parameter in measuring how well your kidneys are functioning. What is the treatment for CKD stage 4 with GFR 20?

CKD stage 4 with GFR 20

Nephrons are the basic functional units of kidneys. They are composed of five kinds of renal intrinsic cells. These cells function together to maintain kidneys to perform well.

However, a variety of diseases and conditions can affect the renal intrinsic cells adversely. When the renal cells become impaired and necrotic, less blood will be filtered by kidneys, thus resulting in low GFR.

In CKD stage 4, when GFR declines to 20, high levels of waste products and toxic substances will accumulate in blood. Thereby, a number of complications will result like high blood pressure, heart disease, bone disease and so forth. These complications can further worsen renal function and lower the patients’ life quality significantly.

Treatment for CKD stage 4 with GFR 20

To treat CKD stage 4 with GFR 20, the first step is to stop further renal function decline and then the next step is to improve renal function and GFR.

How to stop renal function decline?

It is critical to find out the underlying cause of kidney damage and control it. By doing this, it can slow down renal function decline. Then, it is to control the accelerators of kidney function deterioration and the symptoms of CKD stage 4 like high blood pressure, protein in urine, etc.

How to improve renal function and GFR?

The renal intrinsic cells maintain the filtering ability of the kidneys and other renal functions. To improve renal function and GFR, the underlying treatment goal is to restore the impaired cells. Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is an effective treatment for CKD stage 4 and has showed enormous therapeutic effects.
