Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is divided into five stages according to glomerular filtration rate (GFR). How long does it take to get from Stage 3 CKD to Stage 5 CKD, also called Kidney Failure or Renal Failure?
It is hard to say since patients may find Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease at different age, with different physical health and various complications. But as the name implies, Chronic Kidney Disease progress slowly and develops within many years. If Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease can be timely and properly treated, patients can prevent Kidney Failure. Well then, how to treat Stage 3 CKD naturally and effectively?
I would like to list some suggestions for general Stage 3 CKD patients. Any questions, please email to us at email@example.com or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours.
First of all, patients should make some dietary changes, including:
-Reduce sodium intake. Therefore, salty foods such as processed meat, canned soups and fast foods should be avoided.
-Watch our protein intake. Protein will produce waste discharged by kidneys. Limiting protein intake is to reduce burdens on kidneys and protect remaining kidney function.
-Taking enough vitamin such as vitamin C and vitamin B. Never use over-the-counter vitamin supplements. Taking more fresh vegetables and fruits such as red bell peppers, cabbages, cranberry and apple are good choices.
Secondly, Stage 3 CKD patients are suggested to take traditional Chinese medicine to repair the damaged renal tissue and improve blood circulation. Maikang composition and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy are usually used. They can treat kidney disease from the root to enhance kidney’s ability to filter blood, regulate blood pressure, maintain electrolyte balance and activate vitamin D to help bone growth.
