How to Reverse Low GFR in PKD

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-04-07 07:45

Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) can measure how well your kidneys are functioning. Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a progressive genetic disorder. As PKD progresses, low GFR will be the result. How to reverse low GFR in PKD?

Low GFR in PKD

GFR measures how much blood is filtered by glomeruli each minute. It is ranging between 90-125ml/min. Nephrons are the basic structural and functional units of kidneys and they are composed of glomeruli and renal tubules. In PKD, as the cysts enlarge, they will replace more and more nephrons. When more and more glomeruli become involved, less blood will be filtered by glomeruli. Thereby, low GFR will be the result in PKD.

How to reverse GFR in PKD?

To reverse GFR in PKD, the fundamental solution is to increase blood flow through glomeruli. If more blood can be filtered by glomeruli, GFR will be increased in PKD.

To increase blood flow through glomeruli, one treatment step is to shrink the large cysts and reduce pressure against nephrons. In addition, a treatment should be applied to restore the impaired nephrons. If the number of functioning nephrons can be increased, the kidneys will function more efficiently to filter blood. If so, you will be able to reverse low GFR in PKD.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a recommended treatment for PKD patients with low GFR. This is an externally applied therapy of Chinese herbal medicine.

The effective medicines can soften the cyst wall and increase the permeability of the cyst wall. As the cystic fluid is removed from the cysts, the pressure against the kidneys will decrease greatly. If so, more blood will be able to flow through glomeruli, thus increasing GFR level in PKD.

More importantly, the effective medicines can stimulate the self-repairing of the nephrons. If the impaired nephrons can be reversed, more blood will be filtered by glomeruli. Thereby, GFR will be improved fundamentally in PKD.
