Based the reduction of GFR (glomerular filtration rate), Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages. In Stage 3 CKD GFR is approximately 30-60%: GFR 45-59 (3A) or 30-44 (3B). At this stage, your kidneys are moderately damaged, failing to filtering wastes and toxins effectively.

Yes, in most cases. Why does that happen? In general, headache in Stage 3b Chronic Kidney Disease is related to such following factors as:

Due to water-sodium retention or large leakage of protein, high blood pressure occurs easily. When that symptom is uncontrolled, it is likely to lead to headaches.

● Sleep disorder

Sleep quality of Stage 3b Chronic Kidney Disease patients is very important for them. However, because of some complications such as night sweating, muscle cramps, restless leg syndrome (RLS), skin itching, or other discomforts, they always cannot have a good sleep. As a result, they will have headaches frequently.

● Toxin accumulation

Treatment for relieving headaches in Stage 3b Chronic Kidney Disease

● Limit your sodium and protein intake. A healthy diet can prevent or relieve some symptoms due to kidney disease. Low sodium and protein is to reduce the burden of the kidneys, so that it can regulate blood pressure effectively.
