What can GFR 30 tell?

It tells the condition is in late stage of CKD stage 3, also we can call it the early stage of CKD stage 4. The kidney function has already damaged from moderately to severely, but the condition is not that bad.

Will dialysis be started if GFR is 30?

Well, in general, it is yet premature to start dialysis for people with GFR 30. In most countries, when GFR level declines to below 15, while it is 10 in some other countries, dialysis will be started. But there is nothing absolute in this world.

If people with GFR 30 now are suffering from some obvious symptoms or complications such as shortness of breath, severe nausea and vomiting or heart problems, or their serum potassium levels exceed 7mmol/L, etc, then they should take urgent dialysis treatment to avoid more severe consequences happening. Different people have different conditions, so whether should dialysis be started or not has no a direct relation with a creatinine level or a GFR level, it depends on patients’ specific conditions.

Then, what should people with GFR 30 do?
