What Does It Mean When Someone Kidney Level is 3

2015-09-02 11:34| Font Size A A A

What Does It Mean When Someobe Kidney Level is 3Many testes are used to for reflecting how well our kidneys are working, like creatinine, BUN level, GFR (glomerular filtration rate) and so on. As for kidney level 3, it will have different meanings under the different tests. Here let’s have a look.

If patients are diagnosed with GFR 3, it indicates that they are in Kidney Failure Stage.

In the normal condition, the normal GFR ranges from 90-120. Much obviously, GFR 3 is too low to continue to work normally. According to GFR, kidney disease is divided into five stages. In a word, the lower GFR, the more serious kidney damage. Generally speaking, when GFR decreases to 15, patients will suffer a lot, let alone GFR 3. In the condition, the kidneys have lost all of functions and patients must rely on Dialysis to prolong their life.

If patients are told creatinine level, it indicates they are in Stage 3-4 CKD.

In clinic, creatinine level won’t increase until a half of renal function has been damaged. The normal creatinine level ranges from 0.5-1.1mg/fl for females and 0.6-1.2mg/dl for males. Through the comparison, we can see creatinine 3 is indeed much higher than the normal range. In Stage 3 CKD, the damaged kidneys are unable to discharge extra creatinine, thus inducing high creatinine level.

No matter which conditions you have now, now, the most important is to find the effective treatments to deal with these problems. In Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, China, we make full use of Traditional Chinese Medicine, creating a series of new kidney disease treatments, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Maingkang Mixture, Immunotherapy, etc. One of the biggest advantage of these therapy is that they can help repair kidney damage and improve renal function naturally.
