How Serious Is Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

How Serious Is Stage 3 Chronic Kidney DiseaseHow serious is stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD)? Patient with stage 3 CKD may want to have a better understanding about it.

Kidney disease is divided into five stages according to patient’s glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and for healthy people, his GFR is about 125ml/min. While for patient who is in stage 3, his GFR is within 30~59ml/min, which means patient has moderate kidney damage at this point.

For patient who is in stage one or two CKD, he may not have any obvious problem caused by his kidney damage, and patient may feel everything is fine. However, the truth is our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and there will not be any problem caused by kidney damage as long as more than half kidney function is normal. Thereby, problems caused by kidney damage begin to appear when patient is in stage 3 of CKD.

Stage 3 CKD is also divided into stage 3A and stage 3B. For patient who has stage 3A CKD, he may also feel his condition is OK, and there may not be any obvious problem caused by his kidney disease. And for patient who has stage 3B CKD, some mild symptoms may appear, like fatigue, nausea and vomiting, itching, foamy urine, high blood pressure, etc.

In fact, patient’s symptoms are still not very severe when he is in stage 3. Just as creatinine level, creatinine can reflect patient’s kidney condition, and it will not rise until more than half kidney function is damaged. Besides, creatinine level will not have obvious rise more than three fourths kidney function is damaged. It is also to say, even though patient is already in stage 3 CKD, and his kidney is damaged severely, he will not have very suffering experience. But once patient’s disease progresses into stage 4 CKD, his condition will progress much more quickly than stage 3, and dialysis will be needed before long.

Thereby, for patient with stage 3 CKD, his condition is already very severe, and it is very important for patient to take right measures to cope with his condition.
