What Is Stage 3 Kidney Disease“I have had hypertension for 10 years. Recently, my doctor told me that I have stage 3 kidney disease. What is stage 3 kidney disease?” These words come from one of our patients. If you also have this question, try to have an overview of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) here.

Chronic kidney disease is one condition in which kidney loses their filtration function, regulate function and secretion function gradually. In clinic, glomerular filtration function (GFR) is the most reliable indicator to reflect kidney function level. Therefore, according to GFR, chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages.

Stage 3 kidney disease is the moderate stage where kidneys are functioning between 30%~59%. Because kidneys are strong excretory organs, patients can still live mostly like general population with about 50% of kidney function. However, with the decline of kidney function, patients are more likely to suffer from various symptoms. They are:

- High blood pressure and high creatinine level

- Fatigue or feeling tired all the times

- Swelling or edema because of too much fluid retention or protein leakage

- Foamy urine or blood urine

- Back, flank or kidney pain

- Poor appetite and sleep problems

If you have some of the above symptoms, doctors must recommend you to do some tests such as urine test and blood test. These tests can make you get an accurate diagnosis. Stage 3 kidney disease is one vital stage in which effective treatments can reverse it, otherwise it will progress into stage 4 or end stage. In this light, patients with stage 3 kidney disease should accept effective treatments timely.
