I Have a GFR of 57, Can It Be Reversed

GFR stands for Glomerular Filtration Rate, which is an indicator for kidney condition. Normally, GFR is higher than 90. GFR of 57 is a very low level, which means kidney function has been severely impaired. Well, when our GFR is as low as or lower than 57, can it be reversed?

Low GFR of 57 means CKD stage 3

GFR reflects kidney condition, and low GFR means low kidney function. In medicine, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into 5 stages according to GFR. In CKD stage 3, GFR stays in range 30-59, so GFR 57 means stage 3 kidney disease.

Can low GFR be reversed?

To be honest, there is no complete cure for CKD, because no treatment has bee proven to be able to bring dead kidney intrinsic cells back to life. Although there is no cure for Chronic Kidney Disease, please do not be negative, because there is treatment which can repair some injured kidney tissues, so as to restore some kidney function and reverse GFR to a better level.

I Have a GFR of 57, Can It Be ReversedIf we have low GFR of 57, what is the treatment to reverse it?

For one with GFR level 57, about half of his kidney function is impaired. In such a case, there are totally three groups of kidney intrinsic cells in his body: healthy kidney intrinsic cells, injured kidney intrinsic cells and dead kidney intrinsic cells. There is nothing we can do for dead kidney intrinsic cells, but for injured kidney intrinsic cells, which are still alive and just lose some of their working ability, there is way to strengthen them and help them get complete recovery. In Kidney Therapy China, Chinese medicine treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture and Foot Bath are usually used to increase GFR. These Chinese medicine treatments are very beneficial for kidney. They not only increase self-recovery ability of injured kidney intrinsic cells, but also strengthen residual kidney tissues, so as to prevent deterioration of kidney condition.

When your GFR is as low as 57, you might be told there is nothing to worry. If at that time, some problems like high blood pressure, and proteinuria have been caused, you might be just prescribed with some oral tablets to tightly control these problems, but please remember, if you want to get your illness reversed, you must strengthen your kidney, because you can not get good recovery just by treating symptoms of kidney disease.
