Reduced Low eGFR In Blood: What Causes This

Reduced Low eGFR In Blood: What Causes ThisA blood test for eGFR or estimated glomerular filtration rate is a measurement of stage of renal failure. EGFR test is used whenever there is suspicion of a kidney disease. Well then, what causes low eGFR in blood?

This is usually the case in patients who are suffering from diabetes or from hypertension for a prolonged period of time. Both of these diseases can affect the kidneys in different ways and overwork your kidneys to the point at which they are no longer able to function optimally anymore. The first sigh of kidney disease is when a urine test will show a high level of proteinuria and albuminuria. If sugar is detected in the urine, there is a sure sigh that kidney disease is from diabetes.

Why do you need eGFR test?

An eGFR blood test may be recommended by your doctor to determine the creatinine levels in your blood. The test shows kidney function and indicates how well or poorly your kidneys are filtering the creatinine from your blood.

If the eGFR is below 60, it reveals the possibility of kidney disease. If your report shows a low eGFR blood test in the range of 60 to 20, you should seek medical help immediately for kidney malnutrition or kidney disorders. If your eGFR is below 20, you are at a high risk of kidney failure.

Kidney disease can occur because of a wide range of problems that start from infections and inflammation all the way to autoimmune disease related problems like diabetes. Diabetes and hypertension are a vicious cycle of problems that will cause kidney failure at some time.

As for the treatment, you first need to know the cause of low eGFR. For example, diabetes, infection or high blood pressure should be managed effectively. This can prevent further kidney damage. Besides, you should take treatment to repair kidney damage and improve GFR level. Here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment which is a series of Chinese medicine treatments such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They can stimulate the self-healing ability of injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. In this way, low eGFR is increased.
