How to Increase GFR for People with One Kidney and High Creatinine

I am born with one kidney. I just was found out to have high creatinine 2.3 and high proteinuria. My doctor told me that my GFR is 31. I feel very scared. Will I die very soon? How can I increase my GFR?

Please do not panic. If someone is born with only one kidney, the kidney can grow to reach a size similar to the combined weight of two kidneys. It can filter as much as two kidneys would normally and handle the extra load. While you only have one kidney, it does not mean that your renal function is discounted by 50%.

Now your GFR is 31 and you are in the stage 3 of CKD. If can take effective treatment and change your present lifestyle, you will certainly be able to increase your GFR and enjoy a normal lifespan.

Develop a healthy diet

Kidneys filter wastes out of kidneys. You should choose foods which can produce metabolic wastes to burden kidneys. A renal diet should limit the foods loaded in potassium, phosphorus, proteins and sodium. You should consult your doctor or a dietitian to make an individualized diet based on the levels of different minerals in your body.

Quit unhealthy habits

Smoking causes faster progression of kidney disease. Therefore, you should stop smoking. Also, losing excess weight and exercising are keys to better health that are completely in the patients’ control.

Effective treatment

No matter what disease you get, an effective treatment definitely plays the most important role. High creatinine and decreased GFR are result of kidney structure impairment. Therefore, to increase GFR and prevent further kidney function decline, the treatment should be able to restore kidney structure and restore renal function. The combination application of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy are alternative treatment options for kidney disease. The therapies are designed to stimulate the self-repairing system of the impaired kidneys to improve renal function. Thereby, the GFR will improve a lot and you will avoid developing total renal failure.
