What Does A GFR of 34 Mean for FSGS Patients

What Does A GFR of 34 Mean for FSGS PatientsFrom glomerular filtration rate (GFR), we can tell how well the blood is filtered by the kidneys. When GFR declines, it indicates that your kidneys are not able to work properly. What does a GFR of 34 mean for FSGS patients?

A GFR of 34 means your kidney disease is in stage 3 CKD.

FSGS means some parts of some glomeruli become sclerotic so that blood can not reach them and then they lose their ability to filter blood. FSGS is a kind of CKD. According to the GFR, CKD is classified into five stages. In stage 3, GFR ranges from 30-60 ml/min. Therefore, GFR 34 means you are in late stage 3.

A GFR of 34 means the symptoms you have become more serious than before.

With the decline of GFR, you have more and more symptoms and the symptoms you have become more and more serious. The common symptoms in late stage 3 CKD include foamy urine, blood urine, nausea, vomit, headache, shortness of breath, swelling, weakness, muscle cramp, sleeping problems, poor appetite, etc.

A GFR of 34 means you have to receive treatment as early as possible to restore kidney function.

If you do not take measures as early as possible to protect your kidney function, your GFR will continue to decrease and your FSGS will quickly develop to stage 4. At that time, you may have to do fistula surgery to prepare for dialysis or wait for kidney transplant, because it usually takes a short time from stage 4 to ESRD. A good treatment for FSGS should not only control all the symptoms, but also aid in kidney self-healing. Western medicine can help you achieve the first goal. If you want to achieve the second goal, you should take advantage of Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and decoction. They can remove stasis and dilate blood vessels to increase blood low to kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. They can also lower cholesterol level, decrease blood pressure and reduce blood sugar so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your GFR will increase to certain extent. With the help of online doctor, you can get a free treatment plan for FSGS.
