Lots of countries provide GFR test, so more and more CKD patients pay attention on GFR level. But due to all kinds of reasons, there still are various patients do not know about GFR, so this article will give the answer that why chronic kidney disease patients care about GFR.
GFR stands for glomerular filtration rate which describes the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney. And it is divide into 5 stage:
CKD0-kidney function in normal, GFR>90mL/min/1.73m2, with no protein in urine.
CKD1-GFR>90mL/min/1.73m2, with no obvious damaged renal function.
CKD5-GFR(serious), GFR<15mL/min/1.73m2, some patients undergo dialysis, and some need not.
So GFR can show your renal function directly. Once you find your GFR decreases, which is the indicators of kidney disease in early stage, so that you should do treatments as soon as possible.The earlier the diagnosis and treatment of renal dysfunction, the greater the chance to retain the remaining intact nephron. And it necessary to avoid dialysis.
High creatinine means that there are lots of toxins and excess wastes in body, which did not mean the renal function, and your kidney disease is better than before. It only show how much toxins and excess wastes in your body.
Once your GFR improve that your renal function is improved.
There still are lots of patients do not know about GFR, they all think that their kidney diseases are better than before, once they reduce creatinine level. Now, do you still think that your kidney disease is better with reduced creatinine?
