What Does GFR 10 Mean for FSGS Patients

What Does GFR 10 Mean for FSGS PatientsGFR is stand for Glomerular Filtration Rate. From GFR, we can see how well your kidneys are functioning and which stage you are in. What does GFR 10 mean for FSGS patients? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

GFR 10 means you are in end stage renal disease (ESRD).

FSGS is a kind of chronic kidney disease. According to GFR, CKD is classified into five stages. In stage 5, GFR is lower than 15. Now your GFR declines to 10, so you are in ESRD. In such a stage, you may have a lot of symptoms and complications, such as foamy urine, swelling, anemia, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. And because of the declined GFR, waste products can not be filtered out of the body. In ESRD, their concentration in the blood is so high that they may affect your whole body systems so as to threaten your life.

How to improve GFR 10 for FSGS patients?

In most countries, doctors recommend dialysis or kidney transplant to maintain your life, while in China, we usually repair the damaged kidneys to promote their function so as to avoid dialysis and transplant. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the characteristic treatment of our hospital. In TCM, 4M treatment (Mai Kang Mixture, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath and various medicinal soup) is widely used. They can draw out toxins from the body to reduce their damage. They can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into the kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. They can also decompose the deposited immune complexes to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Besides, they can regulate blood pressure, reduce cholesterol level and decrease blood sugar level. All in all, they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your GFR will improve certain extent and then you can get rid of dialysis or kidney transplant.
