Kidney disease can be divided into five stages, and patients have no obvious symptoms or discomforts until the illness develops into the third stage. Then, what are symptoms in Stage 3 Kidney Disease?
Stage 3 Kidney Disease has moderately diminished GFR (glomerular filtration rate) of 30~59ml/min and it indicates that kidneys fail to work properly and impaired kidney cannot remove water and metabolic wastes from the body and a high accumulation of wastes and toxins will lead to various symptoms and complications.
Swelling and high blood pressure
A healthy kidney can balance water and electrolytes. Damaged kidneys cannot discharge excessive water, sodium and other electrolytes from the body effectively, and fluid and sodium retention can cause swelling and high blood pressure.
There is a filtration membrane in human’s glomeruli which can filter the wastes and toxins from the blood and keep the nutrients that are needed by our body, while, for patients with stage 3 kidney disease, due to glomeruli damage, the permeability of filtration membrane may decrease. Thus, protein can leak out from glomeruli, leading to proteinuria.
Anemia and fatigue
Kidneys are important organs to secrete enough EPO (erythropoietin) which is responsible for producing enough red blood cells for your body need. Once your kidneys are damaged, kidneys will lose this function and insufficient red blood cells are caused. If so, your body will lack of blood, called anemia. And with the company of anemia, fatigue and dizziness will occur.
Patients with stage 3 kidney disease will experience a series of urine changes. Their urine output may become abnormally more or less. They may have frequent urination during the night. Besides, they may have foamy urine, blood urine and tea colored urine. These urine changes are induced by decreased kidney function.
The above is the general introduction about “Stage 3 Kidney Disease Symptoms’’. Only with a timely and effective treatment, can these symptoms be reversed. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Hot Compress Therapy and Medicated Bath have been widely used in China, and achieve great effects on treating kidney disease.
