Signs of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)As the name implies, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a slow progressive process. In clinic, it is divided into five stages according to GFR (glomerular filtration rate) or serum creatinine level. Are there any signs of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease?

An overview of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

Many people with Chronic Kidney Disease do not know it because the early signs can be very subtle. In many cases, people with Chronic Kidney Disease do not get Kidney Failure in many years. Some people may live with CKD without ever reaching Kidney Failure.

People with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease are characterized by a GFR reduces to 30ml/min to 60ml/min. As a result, the damaged kidneys can cause some symptoms. However, many of the symptoms can be caused by other health problems. If you or someone you know has one or several symptoms listed in the following passages, you should see a doctor for blood and urine tests.

At any stages, knowledge is good for you to take proper treatment and get the best outcome. Now, let’s see what signs of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease are.

Symptoms 1: Urinary Changes

The main function of kidneys are producing urine. When they are damaged, they cause some urinary changes that may include:

● Frequent urination, especially at night

● Foamy or bubbly urine

● You may urinate more often, or in greater amounts than usual, with pale urine.

● You may urinate less often, or in smaller amounts than usual, with dark-colored urine.

● Blood in the urine

● You may feel pressure or have difficulty urinating

Symptoms 2: Swelling

Another kidney function is to keep the water balance of the body. Due to damaged kidneys, excessive fluid will be build up and thus causing swelling (edema) in the legs, ankles, feet, face, and/or hands.

Symptom 3: Fatigue

Fatigue is always associated with anemia, which are caused by EPO (erythropoietin) deficiency. Our kidneys also secrete some hormones. Erythropoietin is very necessary for the generation of red blood cells. When kidneys cannot work well, red blood cells reduce, leading to anemia. That’s why Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease patients feel fatigue even they do light work.

Symptom 4: Skin Itching

When the kidneys fail, the build-up of wastes in your blood can cause severe itching.

Symptom 5: Nausea and Vomiting

A severe build-up of wastes in the blood (uremia) can also cause nausea and vomiting. Loss of appetite can lead to weight loss.
