Do I Need Dialysis if My GFR Is 23GFR is an indicator of kidney function. With its decline, you may have to consider kidney replacement treatment, such as dialysis to maintain your life. Do I need dialysis if my GFR is 23? After reading this article, you will find out the answer.

What does GFR 23 mean?

According to GFR, chronic kidney disease (CKD) is divided into five stages. Now your GFR 23 means you are in CKD stage 4 (GFR 15-30 ml/min). In this stage, you may be recommended to do fistula to prepare for dialysis. But dialysis is not necessary yet. With conventional treatment, you can still lead a normal life. What you should do now is to stop the deterioration of the disease.

Treatment for patients with GFR 23 to avoid dialysis

Because of decreased GFR, a lot of waste products build up in the blood. They do not only cause direct damage to the kidney, but also counteract the effect of medication to affect the therapeutic effect. Therefore, it is a necessity to cleanse the blood and improve internal environment.

In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy, is often used. This is a systemic treatment, which is made up of various therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, etc. It can increase urination, improve bowel movement and make you sweat so as to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body. It can also expand blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

After about one week’s treatment, there will be obvious changes in urine. It will become smelly and cloudy due to the existence of wastes.

After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be reduced. Symptoms such as weakness, swelling, proteinuria, cold limbs, skin itching and so on will get relieved greatly.

After about one month’s treatment, kidney disease will be under control, and GFR will be increased gradually.

Do I need dialysis if my GFR is 23? No, you needn’t. Now you are only in stage 4 kidney disease, timely treatment can halt the progression of disease and avoid dialysis. For more information on our hospital and our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
