Why does Stage 3 CKD cause weight loss?

Weight loss can be attributed to numerous causes. The root cause is the decline of kidney function.
The decline of kidney function

For Stage 3 of Chronic Kidney Disease patients, their GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) is about 30%~59%. And it means their kidneys have been damaged moderately. With the decline of kidney function, kidneys no longer have fully functioned, and some clinical symptoms will occur, such as high blood pressure, weight loss, poor appetite, vomit, etc.


In order to improve kidney function, patients in Stage 3 CKD should also have a strict diet limitation. A restricted diet is very likely to cause malnutrition, thus resulting in weight loss. For example, they should limit intake of protein and calorie, but a low in protein and calorie cannot satisfy the body needs. Thereby, malnutrition is a main cause for weight loss.

Poor appetite

As kidney function declines gradually in Stage 3 CKD, kidneys fail to filter out waste products and extra fluid from the body, especially urea. If extra urea accumulates in the gastrointestinal tract, it can affect patients’ digestive system and poor appetite can be induced easily. The less you eat, the more physical weight you lose.

If you are a patient with stage 3 of chronic kidney disease and obvious weight loss, it means your kidneys fail to function adequately. In this condition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended to you. This therapy makes use of effective Chinese medicine to enhance renal cells’ self-repairing ability and improve kidney function from the root. With the promotion of your kidney function, the relevant symptoms in Stage 3 CKD will be eliminated gradually, weight loss included.
