Increase GFR Naturally | How to Raise GFR Value 8-11 Points
In this video we give 3 ways on how to increase GFR naturally. The Journal of the Associations of India in May 2022 reported on a study of how people that are non diabetic, not on dialysis and have a GFR between 15 and 45 could improve their GFR between 8 and 11 points by following a few things and these are what these things are.
First of all, they gave everybody a low protein diet. A low protein diet where you want to follow this guideline this calculation. The calculation is 6 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight. Second, everybody got N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC). Now the study was 300 mg twice a day. I’m gonna recommend way higher because we use way higher and a lot of other research. So you want to go like 900 to 1000 twice a day.
Lastly, we recommend a B vitamin called P-5-P, aka pyridoxal phosphate, at 50 to 100 mg once per day. Other countries in the study used pyridoxamine, but that’s not available here in the US, so we use a cousin of that supplement.
The way most kidney patients can get their GFR levels checked is with a simple blood test that measures their creatinine levels. Creatinine is a waste product that derives from the digestion of dietary protein and the normal breakdown of muscle tissue. Aside from chronic kidney disease, creatinine levels can be affected by other factors including diet; muscle mass, which is the weight of your muscles; malnutrition; and other chronic illnesses. With proper diet and supplementation, kidney patients can work to increase their GFR which is a direct reflection of how well their kidneys are operating.
The kidneys function to filter your blood by getting rid of waste and excess fluid to make urine. The glomerular filtration rate (GFR) shows how well the kidneys are doing this filtering process. An estimated 37 million adults in the United States may have chronic kidney disease (CKD) and can take the steps needed to protect their kidney function when it is found early.
