What Type of Food Should Be in the Diet at GFR of 21

What Type of Food Should Be in the Diet at GFR of 21The glomerular filtration rate (GFR) level is an accurate indicator reflecting how well the kidneys are working. The lower GFR is, the more kidney function loses. What type of food should be in the diet at GFR of 21?

A kidney-friendly diet

GFR 21 means patients are are Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease. When it reduces below 15 ml/min, Kidney Failure occurs and patients need dialysis to filter the blood.

In order to reduce burden on kidney and slow down the progression of CKD Stage 4, patients are required to reduce sodium intake, limit protein, lower potassium and phosphorous intake. Fluid may be also needed to be limited if patients cannot urinate normally.

Foods that can be added into the diet at GFR 21 include fresh vegetables and fruits and high-quality protein foods such as cranberry, pomegranate, apple, cabbage, cucumber, lettuce, egg white, lean meat and fish are good choices.

Treatments to increase GFR 21

Even though a kidney-friendly diet is helpful for treating kidney disease, it cannot solve the underlying problem. I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs to repair damaged renal tissues, increasing GFR levels.

The main function of traditional Chinese herbs is to increase blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair damaged renal tissues.

Commonly used herbal remedies for increasing GFR 21 are Maikang Composition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Steam Therapy and Foot Bath, etc. They are all natural external applications used in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital.
