Q: I was diagnosed with Kidney Disease Stage 3 last month and my kidney function is left with 52%. I am 42 years old. I am very worried. Can Anybody tell me the life expectancy of kidney disease stage 3?
A: thank you for your inquiry. Generally speaking, kidney disease stage 3 is a moderate kidney damage. If you have no severe complications and symptoms, it is very possible for you to live to an old age. A good hospice service can help make the lifespan longer and the life easier and more comfortable for you and your family.
I suggest you should regard the treatment option as the most important aid. As long as the treatment can help keep your kidney function in a stable level, you may live a full life just like the normal person.
Actually, I have to say, all I said is just possibility for you, because there are too many factors involved in. It is hard to estimate even a general lifespan for you. But if you can offer more details of your medical condition, more specific answer can be offered. Please send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org, if you need further information.
The following is some CKD stage 3 patients’ story of their life expectancy and I’d like to share with you.
“I believe the progression of the disease depends on many factors. Personally, I was in Stage 3 for about 14 years until last year when I progressed to Stage 4. Again like I said this was my personal journey and does not apply to everyone.” --antoniolyon
“I have a GFR of close to that amount (54) and am 37. I've been told that I can live to old age if the number doesn't go down and that diet will play a huge role in whether or not that number goes down or stays the same.”-- zisisge
“It just take 3 years for me from CKD stage 3 to Stage 5. Why? I felt very scared. You know CKD stage 5 will no give to much time to live. I have no better choice but Kidney Transplant.”--Kristian121
