According to GFR level, kidney disease is divided into 5 stages. When GFR is below 15, it indicates you are in stage 5 kidney disease. In this stage, your kidneys are severely damaged. A lot of wastes build up in your blood. If you do not purify your blood timely, they will cause further damage to your kidneys. This is the reason why the doctors often recommend dialysis to patients.
Why dialysis can not help GFR 9 in stage 4 kidney failure improve kidney functions?
Dialysis, as an artificial kidney, can help remove some toxins out to relieve your condition. However, dialysis also has some limitations. It can cause some side effects such as low blood pressure, muscle cramp and infection, etc. Moreover, dialysis does nothing to repair your injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. In other words, it is impossible to increase your low GFR with dialysis. This is also the reason why some patients want to increase their GFR without dialysis.
