Will Stage 3 Kidney Disease Reduce Your Life SpanWill stage 3 kidney disease reduce your life span? Yes, it will affect your life span more or less. This question is most concerned by kidney disease patients. Well, how does kidney disease stage 3 reduce or affect your life span?

Kidney disease is divided into 5 stages according to glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Stage 3 kidney disease is a special stage. In stage 1 and stage 2 kidney disease, patients have no obvious symptoms. Thus, once they are aware there is something wrong with their kidneys, their illness condition has developed to stage 3 kidney disease. Patients in stage 3 kidney disease have a moderate decrease in the GFR of 30ml/min/m2 --59ml/min/m2 and they have lost about half of kidney function. Patients under such a condition will suffer from symptoms like bubbly or foamy urine, frequent urination at night, anemia and swelling in the feet, hands and ankles. Life span will be reduced to a certain extent.

Even in stage 3 kidney disease it is still very much important to exercise. The key point here is to know what type of exercise is best for you and what intensity is best for you.
