What does it mean with GFR 18?

It means you are in CKD stage 4, in which you may have to prepare for dialysis or kidney transplant. Once it is lower than 15, these kidney replacement treatment should be started to maintain your life.

In stage 4, there may be some complications to threaten your life, such as cardiovascular disease, infections, heavy swelling, etc. Therefore, it is dangerous with a low GFR.

Treatment to improve GFR 18

Because of low GFR, there must be a lot of waste products and extra fluid in the blood. Those excessive substances can cause further damage to your kidneys and other body systems. They can also counteract with the medications you take to affect the therapeutic effect. Therefore, it is necessary to have a cleanse of the blood.

In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used to improve internal environment. This is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which is made up of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate excessive substances from the blood via urine, sweat and bowel movement. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can reduce renal inflammation and halt the progression of disease.

After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those waste products being passed out.

After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be reduced. Symptoms such as weakness, skin itching, cold limbs, shortness of breath, and poor appetite can be relieved greatly.

After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
