2014-09-10 09:17

BUN and Creatinine Levels in Stage 4 Kidney FailureBUN (blood urea nitrogen), creatinine and GFR (glomerular filtration rate) are always used in clinic, reflecting how well your kidneys are working. How about the condition in Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure? You can get a general understanding from this article and get some suggestions. Any questions, you can email to or contact our experts online for free help.

How serious is Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure?

Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure (CKF) has advanced kidney damage with a severe decrease in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) to 15-30 ml/min. It is likely someone with stage 4 CKD will need dialysis or a kidney transplant in the near future.

BUN and creatinine levels in Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure

In Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure, the serum creatinine level ranges from 442ummol/L to 707ummol/L. Blood Urea Nitrogen level is at least higher than the normal range (7-20 mg/dL in adults, and 5-18 mg/dL in children). In some cases, Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure patients can have high creatinine level but normal BUN level. That’s why a BUN-to-creatinine ratio is taken as a more accurate indicator of kidney function.

How to treat Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure naturally?

1. Maintain a good diet

At this stage, your kidneys cannot filter excessive wastes and toxins adequately. You should avoid high quantity of protein intake that will produce more wastes and burden the kidneys. In addition, low salt diet is also required, because high high sodium level in the blood will cause swelling and high blood pressure. You should take more fresh fruits and vegetables to ensure the vitamins and calories intake.

2. Develop a healthy life habit

It include proper exercise and avoiding alcohol and smoking.

3. Improve kidney function

Can medicines achieve this goal? I am afraid not. Over-the-counter drugs or dialysis can only help you relieve some symptoms so as to slow down the progression of kidney damage. Therefore, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy that is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

This therapy can enhance the kidneys’ self-repairing ability by expanding the blood vessels. With improved blood circulation, the kidney function can be improved to discharge more wastes and toxins, including creatinine and BUN.
