Glomerular Filtration Rate 12 and Creatinine 5.5

GFR 12, creatinine 5.5.jpgGlomerular filtration rate (GFR) and creatinine are important indexes to show kidney function. GFR refers to the test that measures blood flow amount through glomerulus every minute. The normal level of GFR is 80-120mL/min. Creatinine is the main metabolic waste of muscle. Usually, almost all creatinine will be removed out by kidney. So creatinine in body is stable, which is 0.5-1.2mg/dL.

GFR 12 and creatinine 5.5

When kidney function gets more than 50% damaged, creatinine begins to raise and GFR decrease. The higher creatinine and lower GFR, the more damages of kidney function. Creatinine 5.5 and GFR 12 show the end stage of chronic kidney failure.

How to deal with GFR 12 and creatinine 5.5?

Since GFR 12 and creatinine is caused by kidney damages. Therefore, the fundamental way to deal with GFR 12 and creatinine 5.5 is to stop kidney function further damages and repair the damaged but not necrotic nephrons.
