Can Ketosteril Help Imporve Kidney Function and GFRHow to improve kidney function and GFR has became a mroe concerned issue among doctors and patients with Kidney Failure or Chronic Kidney Disease. Recentely, some patients consult the question: can ketosteril help improve kidney function and GFR?

Actually, ketosteril is generally known as Compound α-Ketoacid Tables. And it is used for preventing and treating renal damages due to protein metabolism disorder in chronic kidney diease (CKD). Usually, its therapeutic effects are more better with low-protein diets. It is usually applied to those that have glomerular filtration rate (GFR) less than 25ml/min and the standard of low-protein diet is 40g/day or less for adults.

In Conservative Treatment for Kidney Failure, ketosteril can help achieve the following condition if developing very low-protein intake.

1. Reduce the uremia’s symptoms

2. Protect remaining renal function and slow down the progression of illness condition.

3. Guarantee patients’ nutrition even though patients have a low-protein diet.

4. Treat metabolic disorders due to kidney insufficiency.

While ketosteril has so many effects in treating kidney disease, it still has many side effects. Ketosteril does have certain effects on lowering creatinine, but it still depends on the patients’ illness and physical conditions and patients should not rely on ketosteril only. The more lower GFR, the more less kidney function.
