In stage 5 kidney disease,the kidneys are damaged seriously with glomerular filtration rate (GFR) below 15 ml/min.In general,when GFR reduces less than 10ml/min,dialysis will be initiated.What is the treatment for stage 5 kidney disease with GFR 11 and no dialysis is involved?
How serious is stage 5 kidney disease with GFR 11?
Each kidney is composed of around one million of nephrons.In right condition, blood flows through kidneys and the wastes will be filtered out of body.Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is featured with gradual damage and loss of these nephrons.In stage 5 kidney disease a large part of nephrons are damaged and some are necrotic.As a result,less blood flows through kidneys,resulting in reduced GFR.Normal GFR ranges between 90~120ml/min.GFR 11 indicates that the blood filtered by kidneys declines significantly.
Treatment for stage 5 kidney disease with GFR 11
Dialysis can help the body get rid of extra fluid and wastes from body, but it has no significance in improving renal function.To treat stage 5 kidney disease with GFR 11,the underlying goal of treatment is to increase blood supply to kidneys and improve renal function.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the recommended treatment for stage 5 kidney disease with GFR 11.
Firstly,the medicines can dilate blood vessels,dissolve thrombus,and lower high blood fat levels.In this way,the blood circulation will be improved and more blood will be provided to kidneys,thus elevating GFR.In addition,more nutrients and oxygen will be transported to impaired kidneys and provide essential substances for repairing the kidneys.
Secondly,the active substances in Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can activate the self-healing system in body.The impaired kidney tissues will be regenerated, thus improving renal function. In this way, the patients will not need dialysis.
