Estimate glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) are test index reflecting how well the kidneys are functioning. Well then, what can you do for eGFR 8 and creatinine 530?
What does eGFR 8 and creatinine 530 mean?
In clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into five stages, according to the Glomerular Filtration Rate.
CKD Stage 1: Normal or minimal kidney damage with normal GFR 90+
CKD Stage 2: Mild decrease in GFR 60-89 ml/min
CKD Stage 3: Moderate decrease in GFR 30-59 ml/min
CKD Stage 4: Severe decrease in GFR 15-29 ml/min
CKD Stage 5: Kidney Failure in GFR<15ml/min
Therefore, eGFR 8 means patients are at the end stage renal disease, which requires dialysis immediately.
Dialysis for eGFR 8 and creatinine 530
Dialysis is a method used to remove waste in the blood, so it is also called “artificial kidney”. There are two types: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. You can talk with your doctors to decide which type you want to take.
One thing you should know is that dialysis is very necessary for this condition, unless patients can get a kidney transplant. However, dialysis may bring some side effects, and it is not the perfect way. Treatment should not only control symptoms but should also protect and enhance renal function.
Any questions about dialysis, please email to email@example.com, and our experts will reply you within 24 hours.
Natural treatment for patients with eGFR 8 and creatinine 556
In order to improve kidney function, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Stem Cell Therapy. Both of these methods aim at treating kidney disease by improving blood circulation and repair the damaged renal tissues. As long as the kidney function can be improve, creatinine and other waste can be discharged effectively. Since words are limited here, I cannot introduce you with our treatments in details.
