According to GFR, kidney disease is divided into five stage and the lower GFR is, the more serious kidney damage will be. As for stage 5 kidney disease, the GFR is less than 15 ml/min which means that kidney has nearly lost all of functions and fail to work normally. Consequently, more body health problems will occur, such as high blood pressure, severe swelling, massive proteinuria, hematuria, fatigue, anemia, dehydration, vomiting, diarrhea and so on. Untreated, all of them can become fatal factors. In most countries, doctor will advice patients undergo dialysis.
