Supplements to Improve Glomerular Filtration Rate

Supplements to Improve Glomerular Filtration RateGlomerular filtration rate (GFR) is used to reflect kidney function. If patients’ GFR is lower than the normal, they must want to improve their glomerular filtration rate. What supplements can help achieve this goal?

Vitamin C supplement

Vitamin C is one common antioxidant that can help remove free radicals and protect various organs in the body. From this point, vitamin C is able to protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues. Besides, it can also help increase glomerular filtration rate and lower high creatinine level. Vitamin C can be found in various fruits such as lemon, cranberry, cherry and so on.

Iron supplement

Iron is one essential trace element for the body, because it takes part in the production of red blood cells. With the decline of kidney function, kidneys are unable to secrete enough EPO, so the body produces fewer red blood cells than the normal. Accordingly, less blood can flow into the kidneys to provide nutrients and oxygen. Iron supplements is needed when patients have anemia. As more blood flows into the kidney, kidneys can filter more blood every minute. This means glomerular filtration rate increases.

High-quality protein supplement

Kidney disease patients are always required to follow a restricted diet plan. In this case, they may be faced by malnutrition, so they can take some high-quality protein supplements to nourish them and build up their body.

Vitamin D supplement

Kidneys are responsible for converting vitamin D into active form, but damaged kidneys are unable to do this work normally. If lack of vitamin D, patients will have bone problem, high phosphorus and low calcium level. Vitamin D can help improve patients’ overall health condition to some extent.

According to patients’ illness condition, different supplements are needed to improve patients’ GFR. If you need, you can ask help online.
