The GFR level increased from 50 to 60, it seems that the disease is going to well side. But in fact, we can not diagnose it like this, because there are many factors can affect the levels of GFR, so we should diagnose it from all aspects.
As we all know Chronic Kidney Disease has five stages, in different stage the GFR level is different. GFR, glomerular filtration rate, is the best values to indicate kidney function. Knowing one's GFR helps your doctor to find your stage of kidney disease. It is important for doctors to make a proper treatment plan.
What is GFR?
GFR (glomerular filtration rate) is a measure of how well your kidneys are filtering waste from your blood, and it can be estimated from a measurement of creatinine in your blood.
For people with GFR lower than 60, they are in stage 3 kidney disease, it is a vital stage. For people who are in this stage, their kidneys have been damaged moderately, so that demand immediately treatment, so as to avoid the disease goes worse. If left untreated, the disease will out of control and fall into stage 4 or 5 rapidly, then people have to face dialysis or kidney transplant.
From the above we know that we should make further diagnosis to know that whether the GFR level increase from 50 to 60 is indicate the disease are goes well or not, but no matter how, stage 3 is a reversible stage, so take the chance.
