Question: Hi, my brother’s GFR is 7.7. Does he need dialysis? How bad is his condition?

GFR 7.7: Does He Need Dialysis? How Bad Is His ConditionAnswer: Generally speaking, when GFR is less than 15%, dialysis should be started. But if the patients do not have any severe complications, they can take conservative treatment, but must take measures to protect the residual renal function. Now your brother’s GFR is quite low. If it keeps declining, when it reaches 5, dialysis is a must.

How bad is GFR 7.7?

Because of the low glomerular filtration rate (GFR), there must be a large amount of waste products and fluid in the blood. They do not only cause kidney damage, but also affect the normal function of other organs. For example, they can affect gastrointestinal tract to make him feel nausea and vomiting. They can also affect respiratory system to make him difficulty in breathing. And they can even affect cardiovascular system to increase his risk of death. Therefore, his condition is very urgent now, and he needs treatment to improve his condition.

Treatment for patients with GFR 7.7 to improve renal condition

At present, he is in end stage renal disease (ESRD). Although the kidneys have been severely damaged, and it is impossible to reverse the disease, there are still some kidney tissues that can be repaired. That is to say, he can not restore all the renal function, but he can restore a portion of renal function to keep dialysis away.

In Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy, is often used in kidney failure. This treatment makes use of various therapies, such as plasma exchange, medicated bath, foot bath, enema therapy and so on to increase urine output, improve bowel movement and make him sweat so as to reduce the accumulation of wastes and fluid in the blood. It can also reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

After about one week’s treatment, you will see massive sediments in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

After about half month’s treatment, swelling, weakness, skin itching, poor appetite and so on will get relieved greatly.

After about one month’s treatment, his condition will be under control, and renal function will get improved.

All in all, GFR 7.7 is a very bad condition. If patients do not want to start dialysis, alternatives should be started as early as possible.
