What Does It Mean When You Have 38 Percent Kidney Function

What Does It Mean When You Have 38 Percent Kidney FunctionHow much kidney function people have can be reflected by GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate ). What does it mean when you have 38 percent kidney function?

Meaning of 38 % kidney function

A blood test to calculate your estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) is done and you will know how well your kidneys are working.

Young people with completely healthy kidney function will have an eGFR of 90% or more but people can remain well with much less than this.

If you have 38 percent remaining kidney function, you are at Stage 3B Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). There are five stages of Chronic Kidney Disease, and CKD Stage 3 means your kidneys are moderately damaged.

CKD Stage 3 can be furthered divided into Stage 3A CKD (45 ml/min<GFR<60 ml/min) and Stage 3B CKD (30 ml/min<GFR<44 ml/min).

You might start to experience some symptoms like swelling, fatigue, nausea, sleep disorder, protein or blood in urine, nausea, etc. You can send your test report to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you in 24 hours.

How to improve kidney function?

Some kidney tissues are not dead and can be repaired. In that case, we use traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to achieve that goal. According to our researches, we find that the root cause of kidney damage is ischemia and hypoxia inside kidneys. Therefore, we choose traditional Chinese herbs that can purify blood and increase blood circulation. Then, kidney tissues can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well.

Based on these herbs, we innovate several Chinese herbal therapies. They are more natural and effective for patients than simple oral medicines. These treatments include Maikang Composition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Immunotherapy, Blood Pollution Therapy, and so on. They are external applications, and they can protect and improve remaining kidney function.
