My Creatinine Level is 1.72 but GFR is 26 Which Stage Am I In

My Creatinine Level is 1.72 but GFR is 26 Which Stage Am I InMy creatinine level is 1.72 but GFR is 26 which stage am i in ? You know, creatinine level and GFR are two of the most common indicator of kidney disease, but relatively, GFR is more sensitive than creatinine level. In your case, although your creatinine level is not very high, just 1.72, but your GFR is 26 that indicate your disease now has fell into stage 4 kidney disease.

How to divide stages of kidney disease by GRF level ?

GFR(Glomerular filtration rate)is on behalf of the renal function. Normally GFR should be 120%. And our human body can also maintain the normal operation of life with 60% kidney function. This is why there was a man who had one kidney can also live a normal life. When the kidney function only remain 60%, it has to work all the time. As times going, kidney cells will die as it overload for a long time. At this time, we called decompensated stage. At this time renal function and GFR will decline quickly. Then the body will reflect many symptoms, such as proteinuria, edema, fewer EPO, anemia, higher uric acid toxins, and other toxin that can not be properly discharged, and kidneys can not work properly to regulate health condition, then it need drugs to control this condition. That is the reason why it is difficult to find the kidney has been damaged in stage1 and stage2. When GFR is less than 25%, renal function is too low. we call it kidney failure stage. In this period, all symptoms will aggravate and it is hard to control with drugs. When GFR is less than 15%, the Toxin in the body is difficult to control with drugs except by dialysis. That is the last period, we called uremia.
