What Does 9 Mean in Kidney FunctionKidney function can be reflected well by glomerular filtration rate (GFR), creatinine level as well as BUN level. Well then, what does 9 mean in kidney function? Let’s have a look at the passage and look for the answer together.

The kidneys are important because they prevent the buildup of wastes and extra fluid in the body, keep levels of electrolytes stable, make hormones, regulate blood pressure, make red blood cells and keep bones strong as well. One kidney is made up of about a million filtering units called nephrons. And nephrons includes a filter, called the glomerulus and a tubule. With the normal and healthy glomeruli, kidney will continue to work normally. As our kidney is endowed with the strong compensatory ability, so that half of renal function can guarantee our body health. Compared to the normal kidney function (GFR is between 90-150), Kidney function 9 is a very poor and serious condition. But there are many indexes to reflect kidney function. Here kidney function may refers to creatinine level 9 or GFR 9 and so on.

Both cretinine level 9 and GFR 9 imply the severe kidney damage which means illness condition has developed into Kidney Failure or end-stage renal disease. In the condition, your kidneys stop working well enough and much wastes and toxins have accumulated in the body. These harmful substances in the body will further damage the kidney and other body systems. What’s more, along with severe drop of kidney function, you will suffer from obvious body changes and numerous discomforts. And in the condition, dialysis or kidney transplant will be applied, so as to prolong your life expectancy.

All in all, kidney function 9 is too serious to reverse completely. However, effective treatment still work for protecting your remaining kidney function from deteriorating.
