BUN 49, creatinine 1.7, GFR 45: What should I doEither creatinine or GFR(glomerular filtration rate) is the division basis of kidney disease stages. People have different symptoms and treatments in different stages. Well then, what should the patient do if he or she has such a test result: BUN 49, creatinine 1.7, GFR 45?

What does the test index mean?

Creatinine 1.7 is just slightly higher than the normal upper limit (female 1.1mg/dl and male 1.2mg/dl). If there are no other severe symptoms, you do not need to worry about that, because you can control it through medicines or diet. As for the treatment, you can talk with our experts online.

However, you cannot ignore the GFR. Chronic kidney disease is divided into 5 stages based on the glomerular filtration rate. GFR 45 shows that the condition is in the stage 3 CKD, which means that your kidney function is moderately damaged. Since kidneys have a very strong compensatory ability, even a mild damage of kidney function should be concerned by you, especially when the BUN(blood urine nitrogen) level is 49.

What should I do?

As the illness condition still has a good prognosis, you can recover well if you pay attention to the diet and medicines you use.

As for the diet, low protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorous foods are recommended. In addition, enough calories and nutritions must be ensured so as to provide energy for your kidney function repairing. You can email to kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com for your own diet plan.

As for the medicines, I suggest you Chinese herbs for its fewer side effects, compared with western medicines. All Chinese herbs, such as ophiocordyceps sinensis, rheum officinale, salvia miltiorrhiza and astragalus, come from the nature and have great influence on the improvement of renal function. As long as your kidney function adequately, the glomerular filtration rate will increase, making high creatine level and BUN level decreased.
