2014-05-30 11:31| Font Size A A A

GFR is a commonly used index to measure kidney function. When kidney function is very low, dialysis will be suggested to extend the life span. However, what GFR level requires dialysis?

What GFR level requires dialysis?

In clinic, when the GFR level is below 15ml/min, this alternative remedy will be recommended by the doctors. However, it is not the only index to indentify whether dialysis is needed or not. Other factors that influence this include primary diseases(high blood pressure, diabetes, SLE, etc), nausea, vomiting, heart failure, pulmonary edema, uncontrolled high potassium level(>6.5mmol/L), metabolic acidosis(PH<7.2), severe drowsiness and so on.

After the above analysis, we can come to know GFR level is not the only indicator of this alternative remedy.

The advantages and disadvantages of dialysis:

As a matter of fact, it can help alleviate symptoms, prevent complications and control the progression of primary diseases to some extent. However, everything has two sides, it can just help remove certain amount of micromolecular toxins out of the blood. What’s worse, it fails to do repair the damaged renal cells and improve GFR from the root.

Besides, the expense is usually high and some side effects including low blood pressure, muscle cramps and so on can occur during or after the procedure.
