Symptoms in Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

2013-09-11 17:08| Font Size A A A

As we all know that there are five stages of Chronic Kidney Disease based on glomerular filtration rate(GFR). The kidney function is moderately damaged with the GFR of 30-59ml/min when it goes into stage 3 chronic kidney disease. At stage 2, kidney function is mildly decreased and at stage 4 kidney function is severely decreased. So stage 3 is the middle stage, which should be valued a lot. If you do not take preventive measures, it will develop into serious kidney injury.

Chronic kidney disease presents no clear symptom in the initial stage. But with the aggravation of the disease, symptoms will be seen in an obvious way.

Fatigue: Patients in stage 3 chronic kidney disease often have anemia because the injured kidney cannot produce the required red blood cells which carry oxygen in the form of hemoglobin. The decrease of red blood cells lead to decreased oxygenation and fatigue.

Swelling: Failed kidneys cannot discharge extra water out of our body and overmuch water is retained in blood. You may find swelling in your eyelid, feet and ankles. With heavy swelling, you may feel hard breath.

Urination changes: Because the damaged kidney cannot prevent protein from leaking out, there will be increased protein in urine, leading to foamy urine. Patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease will also experience frequent urination, urgent urination and burning urination.

High creatinine: One of the functions of kidneys is to filtrating waste products and toxins. Creatinine is a kind of metabolic wastes of muscles. With the worsening of kidney function, creatinine will build up in blood. The creatinine will be up to 178-442umol/L in stage 3 chronic kidney disease.

There are other symptoms in stage 3 chronic kidney disease, like proteinuria and hypertension. If you take a treatment in time, these symptoms will be alleviated. Proper method is also important. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended for you.
