How Bad Is Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

How Bad Is Stage 3 Chronic Kidney DiseaseStage 3 CKD is featured with moderate kidney damage. Actually, there are five stages of Chronic Kidney Disease according to glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The more less GFR, the more severe kidney damage. Well then, how bad is stage 3 kidney disease?

A person with Stage 3 CKD has moderate decline of GFR, which ranges from 30-59ml/min. In clinic, patients won’t suffer symptoms or complications until a half of renal function has been damaged. Because our kidneys are endowed with strong compensatory ability. However, usually, in stage 3 kidney disease, patients begin to suffer from discomforts and related symptoms. In the stage, patients are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, anemia, bone disease, itching, swelling, sleep problems and urinary tract problems and so on. In the conditions, patients should see nephrologist as soon as possible.

Although patients suffer a lot in the stage, it is also one of critical stages to take immediate and effective treatments to stop the progression of illness conditions. Well then, how to do?

1. Reduce sodium intake. Salty foods such as processed meat, canned soups and fast foods should be avoided.

2. Watch our protein intake. Protein will produce waste discharged by kidneys. Limiting protein intake is to reduce burdens on kidneys and protect remaining kidney function.

3. Taking enough vitamin such as vitamin C and vitamin B. Never use over-the-counter vitamin supplements. Taking more fresh vegetables and fruits such as red bell peppers, cabbages, cranberry and apple are good choices.

4. Chinese herbal treatment. Simple diet is far away from treating kidney disease from the root. Therefore, it is important to cooperate with medical treatment. In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, many natural treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Maikang Mixture, Foot Bath, Hot Compress Therapy and so on can be available for kidney disease patients.
