Should A Patient with Low GFR Be Hospitalized

Should A Patient with Low GFR Be HospitalizedGlomerular filtration rate (GFR) can divide chronic kidney disease into five stages. If it is lower than the normal, patients may be afraid if they should be hospitalized. Then, should a patient with low GFR be hospitalized?

The answer should depend on the degree of GFR decline and patients’ complications. That is to say, patients with low GFR don’t always need to be hospitalized.

If patients’ GFR is higher than 15ml/min, patients commonly don’t need to be admitted in the hospital.

This is because kidneys can still do their work by themselves with more than 15% kidney function. At this stage, although patients may have some symptoms and complications, these problems are usually not so dangerous for these patients.

If their GFR is lower than 15 ml/min, it means the onset of end stage kidney failure. This may require patients to get admitted in hospital.

In this stage, patients may have some symptoms and complications, some of which are very severe and may cause life-threatening results. If they have the following problems, patients may need to go to hospital quickly.

- Quite high blood pressure

- Hyperkalemia

- Metabolic acidosis

- Cardiovascular disease or heart failure

- Difficult breathing or shortness of breathing

- Severe swelling

- Nerve damage and eye disease

To manage these dangerous complications, patients should take action to save their life timely.

In addition to the above conditions, patients may also need to be hospitalized, if they want to reverse their kidney damage and improve their overall health condition.

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, patients with low GFR need to be hospitalized for 3 days to 2 months for repairing their impaired kidney cells and overcoming patients’ health problems effectively.
