GFR waves from 50 to 60, what does that mean? Does it mean that the GFR is improved? From the value of it, the GFR level is improved, does it indicate that the disease is going well? But in fact, we must be honest and unprejudiced as we attempt to analyze it. That it to say, we should diagnose it from all aspects.
As we all know Chronic Kidney Disease has five stages, the GFR level is different in different stages. GFR, glomerular filtration rate, is the best value to indicate kidney function. Knowing one's GFR helps your doctor to find your stage of kidney disease. It is important for doctors to make a proper treatment plan.
What is GFR ?
GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is a measure of how well your kidneys are filtering waste from your blood, and it can be estimated based on a measurement of creatinine in your blood as well as uirne.
For people with GFR which is lower than 60, they are in stage 3 kidney disease, a vital stage. For people who are in this stage, their kidneys have been damaged moderately, so that demanding immediately treatment so as to avoid the disease from going worse. If left untreated, the disease will be out of control and fall into stage 4 or 5 rapidly, then people have to face dialysis or kidney transplant.
Aside from the above information, we should make further diagnosis to know that whether the GFR level increase from 50 to 60 is an index of that the disease is going well or not, but no matter how, stage 3 is a reversible stage, so take the chance to recovery.
