2015-08-24 02:38

What Is Stage 3 Kidney DiseaseChronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into 5 stages. As for stage 3 CKD, it results in a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 30 to 59, which indicates a moderate decrease in kidney function. In this article, I will introduce you more information about stage 3 CKD.

1. What are symptoms of CKD stage 3?

As kidney function declines, the kidneys lose their ability to remove wastes and maintain normal fluid and electrolyte levels. This results in abnormal potassium, sodium, phosphorus, creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels. During stage 1 and stage 2 of the disease, many patients do not have symptoms while in stage 3 kidney disease many symptoms appear. Complications of this stage of kidney disease include kidney pain, fatigue, swelling of the lower legs, foamy urine, blood in urine and difficulty sleeping. Since wastes build up in the blood, you may experience nausea, vomiting and itching as well as feelings of malaise and illness.

Following a high quality protein diet to reduce pressure on kidneys

Limiting phosphorus to help PTH levels remain normal, prevent bone disease and even preserve residual kidney function

Diabetes patients should cut back carbohydrates

Limiting sodium for people with high blood pressure or fluid retention by cutting out processed and pre-packaged foods.

Chinese herbs

Through expanding blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and improving blood circulation, s favorable internal environment is established.
