What GFR Does Dialysis Start

What GFR Does Dialysis StartDialysis is one commonly used kidney replacement therapy that can help diseased kidneys to prolong patients’ life, but no one wants to begin dialysis if they still have other options. GFR is one reliable indicator for kidney condition. At what GFR does dialysis begin?

Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease often progresses slowly, and patients can still live with their own kidneys when kidneys can work by themselves. In clinic, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) divides chronic kidney disease into five stages.

Stage 1 CKD, GFR is above 90ml/min;

Stage 2 CKD, GFR is 60~89ml/min;

Stage 3 CKD, GFR is 30~59ml/min;

Stage 4 CKD, GFR is 15~29ml/min;

Stage 5 CKD, GFR is less than 15ml/min.

When should patients begin dialysis?

Generally, patients are recommended to consider dialysis when their kidney disease progresses into stage 5 or end stage. That is to say, dialysis is suggested when GFR declines to 15ml/min. This preparing time may need to bring forward according to patients’ illness condition. For example, if patients have pulmonary edema, acidosis, high potassium level, or other problems, they may be suggested to begin dialysis earlier for their health and safety.

Is there any treatment to make patients begin dialysis later?

Yes, there is. If patients’ kidney function is still above 15ml/min, they can still reverse their kidney damage and improve their prognosis successfully. Finally, they can avoid dialysis. To achieve this therapeutic effect, they can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which is able to expand blood vessels and increase the blood flow into kidneys. Besides, this therapy is also good to boost the self-curative ability of impaired kidney cells. Therefore, kidney function level can be improved to some extent, and dialysis can be prevented. If patients’ GFR is less than 15ml/min, what we can do is to delay dialysis treatment. In this case, they can try Clear Blood Pollution Therapy.
