Is A GFR of 48 Dangerous for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Is A GFR of 48 Dangerous for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsFrom the changes of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR), we can see how well your kidneys are working. Generally speaking, if your kidneys are healthy, GFR is 80-120 ml/min. When your kidneys are damaged due to some factors, it declines. Is a GFR of 48 dangerous for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

GFR 48 is not dangerous for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

GFR 48 means you are in stage 3 CKD. Though it declines a lot, your kidneys can still maintain nearly all the function of body. Sometimes you may have some symptoms and complications, such as foamy urine, blood urine, swelling, anemia, high blood pressure, etc, but they are not severe enough to threaten your life.

But you should take treatment as early as possible to prevent further kidney damage.

Nephrotic Syndrome is usually associated with immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. Conventional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is to use steroids and immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage, while those immune complexes are still in the kidneys. Under some inducement, kidney inflammation flares up again. That is why Nephrotic Syndrome relapses frequently. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup) can decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Besides, they can cleanse the blood, lower blood pressure, remove blood stasis and regulate blood sugar level to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome can be brought under control and it is possible for you to improve GFR as well.

Is a GFR of 48 dangerous for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? No, but timely and effective treatment should be taken to prevent GFR from declining further. If you would like to know more information about Nephrotic Syndrome, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
