2015-05-28 03:07

Can CKD Stage 3 Turn Into Stage 4Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into 5 stages from stage 1 to stage 5. If you have kidney disease, your kidneys are slowly losing their ability to remove wastes and excess water from your blood3 kidney disease indicates moderate chronic renal insufficiency where the Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) indicates 40%-59% kidney function. Will CKD stage 3 turn into stage 4?

The condition is progressive meaning it gets over time. Without effective treatment, stage 3 kidney disease will turn into stage 4. How to stop stage 3 CKD from developing into stage 4 CKD?

You can prevent stage 3 kidney disease from progressing into stage 4 from the following aspects:

1. Diet therapy

The so-called renal diet is intended to help your own kidneys to restore proper function. Below is a general diet for stage 3 kidney disease.

Iron-Because so many people with kidney disease suffer from anemia, it might be necessary to consider an iron health supplement.

Potassium- High potassium level, which the majority of kidney disease patients have, can result in heart problems. Avoiding foods that include potassium like bananas, chocolate and plums.

Phosphate and calcium-These minerals are required for good bone wellness but both often spike when one is having kidney disease. Raising blood calcium supplement level and decreasing blood phosphate levels is the key.

Protein-Proteins, from fish, beef, eggs, beans and milk products help the body correct itself, fight an infection and build muscle mass. Unfortunately, protein causes lots of waste products to become formed in your body that normal working kidneys would filter.

Sodium- Too much may cause high blood pressure. You should follow a low salt diet.

2. Restore kidney tissues and improve renal function

The radical solution for kidney disease is to repair kidney tissues and improve renal function. Chinese medicines are proven to be effective in treating kidney disease. The medicines can dilate blood vessels, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix, provide nutrients, boost the self-healing ability of the body to restore the impaired kidney structure and improve renal function.

The above are some tips that help stop stage 3 kidney disease from turning into kidney disease stage 4.
