Stage 3 of Kidney Disease Symptoms

In the view of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR), kidney disease are classified into 5 stages. Stage 3 is a middle stage, which means a moderate loss of kidney functions. Patients with stage 3 of kidney disease shows some symptoms and diet management help slow the progress of the disorder.

Anemia. Anemia means the red blood cells count is lower than the normal range. Kidneys work to secrete various hormones and one of them is known as EPO, erythropoietin as its full name.
