What are the GFR ranges for a CKD patient?

What are the GFR ranges for a CKD patient?

Assign GFR category as follows:

GFR categories in CKD
G3a 45-59 Mildly to moderately decreased
G3b 30-44 Moderately to severely decreased
G4 15-29 Severely decreased
G5 <15 Kidney failure

What is the GFR range for stage 4 kidney disease?

Stage 4 CKD means you have an eGFR between 15 and 29. An eGFR between 15 and 30 means your kidneys are moderately or severely damaged and are not working as they should. Stage 4 kidney disease should be taken very seriously – it is the last stage before kidney failure.

What is CKD Stage GFR level?

Stage 1 with normal or high GFR (GFR > 90 mL/min) Stage 2 Mild CKD (GFR = 60-89 mL/min) Stage 3A Moderate CKD (GFR = 45-59 mL/min) Stage 3B Moderate CKD (GFR = 30-44 mL/min)

Is a GFR of 54 bad?

A GFR of 60 or higher is in the normal range. A GFR below 60 may mean kidney disease. A GFR of 15 or lower may mean kidney failure.

How do you treat Stage 5 CKD?

The main treatments are:

  1. lifestyle changes – to help you stay as healthy as possible.
  2. medicine – to control associated problems, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
  3. dialysis – treatment to replicate some of the kidney’s functions, which may be necessary in advanced (stage 5) CKD.

What are the NKF KDOQI guidelines for kidney disease?

Clinicians should be especially careful in the evaluation of individuals with borderline abnormal results for markers of kidney disease, mild decrease in GFR (60 to 89 mL/min/1.73 m 2 ), high blood pressure, and of other individuals at increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Risk factors for chronic kidney disease are discussed in Guideline 3.

What are the National Kidney Foundation clinical guidelines?

The National Kidney Foundation produces clinical practice guidelines through the NKF Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (NKF KDOQI)™. This program has provided evidence-based guidelines for all stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and related complications since 1997.

What should GFR be for chronic kidney disease?

After much discussion and input from expert reviewers, the Work Group concluded that there is insufficient evidence to label individuals with GFR 60 to 89 mL/min/1.73 m 2, but without markers of kidney damage, as having chronic kidney disease.
