I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
My recent medical test shows my GFR is 32, and recently I feel severe flank pain occasionally. Why? And what should I do?
Hello, friend. Thanks for your inquiry. I am sorry to hear that, but please don’t worry. I will try my best to help you.
As we all know, GFR is an important indicator to reflect renal function. And your GFR 32 means that you are in the stge 3 kidney disease. There is a moderate damage on renal function. With decline of renal function, many symptoms will occur, such as proteinuria, blood urine, swelling and so on. As for your flank pain, there is a variety of causes. The cause varies with your kind of kidney disease. Kidney infection, scarring of kidney tissues, large kidney cysts, kidney stone etc all can cause flank pain. In a word, the more lower GFR is, the severe kidney damage will be.
Then, how to deal with flank pain?
Decreased renal function is the root cause of flank pain. Thereby, the treatment should focus on enhancing kidney function. At our center point, Acupuncture is strongly offered to you. It is a magic medical treatment which is most commonly used for pain relief. It is a stimulation of specific acupoints along with skin of the body involving penetration of thin and long needle.
