Stage 1 CKD Patients: How Long Can Expect to LiveStage 1 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) belongs to the early stage of renal disease, which has kidney damage with a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) at a normal or high level greater than 90ml/min. One of concerned questions among kidney disease patients: how long can they expect to live?

Actually, there are usually no symptoms to indicate the kidneys are damaged. Because kidneys do a good job even when they’re not functioning at 100 percent. What’s more, most people will not know they have stage 1 kidney disease. If they do find out they’re in stage 1, it’s usually because they were being tested for another conditions such as Diabetes, or High Blood Pressure (the two leading causes of kidney disease). To be frank, there is no cure for kidney disease, but it may be possible to stop its progress or at least slow down the damage. In many cases, the correct treatment and lifestyles changes can help keep a person and their kidneys healthier longer. Therefore, it is more significant to know methods about how to protect remaining renal function.

Well then, how to treat stage 1 kidney disease?

Generally speaking, if patients do not have severe symptoms, no treatment is needed. But regular testing for protein in urine and serum creatinine can show whether the kidney damage is progressing.
