If Your Glomerular Filtration Rate Is Lower Than 60

In clinic, glomerular filtration rate always is used as the index of reflecting renal function. for people with Chronic Kidney Disease, decreased glomerular filtration rate indicates that their kidneys have been damaged and if your glomerular filtration rate is lower than 60mL/min/1.73 m2, it tells that your disease has developed into stage 3.
People suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3 usually have glomerular filtration rate in the range from 30mL/min/1.73 m2 to 59mL/min/1.73 m2. Generally speaking, blood flow in our body can get through glomerular filtration membrane and thus filter out the metabolic waste. Decreased glomerular filtration rate indicates that blood flow can not get through the filtration membrane, leading to the accumulation of waste products in the blood. Our kidneys have great reserve capacity, so at the very beginning, there are no symptoms at all and usually when Chronic Kidney Disease develops into stage 3, that is to say, when glomerular filtration rate is lower than 60 9mL/min/1.73 m2, then a series of symptoms will appear.
Our glomerular filtration membrane is composed of different functional cells and each of them has different functions. Thereby, due to the pathological change, people with Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3 may have different symptoms. The possible symptoms appearing in stage 3 include foamy urine, frequent urination at night, vomit, nausea, swelling, changed urine color, lower appetite and itchy skin. In addition, people with Polycystic Kidney Disease(PKD clinic), which is one of the common Chronic Kidney Disease, will have lower back pain.

People suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3 should receive treatment as soon as possible; otherwise, aggravated disease will make them miss the optimal time for treatment. Similar with other disease, the earlier people suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease receive treatment, the better the treatment effects are. Thereby, to avoid the bad consequence of dialysis and kidney transplant, it is very necessary for people to get their disease controlled. for more information, you can email to me or consult our consultant online.
