I am corious and confused about what is stage 3B chronic kidney disease?What can I do for myself?” These words come from one of our patients.

As we all know, according to GFR (glomerular filtration rate), chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages. From stage 1 to 5, there are different degrees of kidney damage. GFR is more than 90ml/min in CKD stage 1 and GFR is between 89-60ml/min in CKD stage 2. Both of them belong to the early stage kidney disease. CKD stage 4 is an advanced stage and it indicates that renal function has a severe drop. CKD stage 5 is also called end stage renal disease (ESRD) and kidney function is less than 15%. Then, how about CKD stage 3B?

Generally speaking, CKD stage 3 means that GFR is about 59-30ml/min and there is moderate damage on kidneys. Actually, stage 3 kidney disease is divided into two stages: stage 3A and stage 3B.

Stage 3A: GFR is about 45-59ml/min.

Stage 3B: GFR is about 30-44ml/min.

In stage 3, the illness condition of stage 3B is more serious than stage 3A. However, our kidneys are strong excretory organs, patients can still live mostly like general population with about 50% of kidney function, while with the decline of kidney function, kidney lose the abilities as they once did.
