Kidney Failure or Chronic Kidney Failure is a slow developing disease and is divided into five stages in clinic. Stage 3 can be further divided into Stage 3a kidney failure and Stage 3b kidney failure. Next, I would like to share with you some information about this stage of kidney disease. I hope you can get some help from this article.
What is Stage 3b Kidney Failure?
Chronic Kidney Failure has five categories according to your creatinine levels and GFR (glomerular filtration rate). They are:
Stage 1: A normal GFR ≥90 mL/min/1.73m2
Stage 2: Slightly decreased GFR 60-89mL/min/1.73m2
Stage 3a: Mild or moderate decrease in GFR between 45-59mL/min/1.73m2
Stage 3b: Moderate or severe decrease in GFR between 30-44mL/min/1.73m2
Stage 4: Severe decrease in GFR 15-29 mL/min/1.73m2
Stage 5: Kidney failure as GFR decreases to less than 15mL/min/1.73m2 or dialysis is started.
How serious is Stage 3b Kidney Failure?
You can see from the above that stage 3b Kidney Failure is in an advanced stage. It means your kidney function has lost at least 55%. High level of wastes and toxins like creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) cannot be discharged by the kidneys adequately. As a result, you may experience some symptoms: Swelling, fatigue/weakness, high blood pressure, digestive problems, urinary changes, dizziness, headache, sleep disorder, and breathing problems, etc.
If left untreated or treated wrongly, Stage 3b Kidney Failure is easy to progress into Stage 4 Stage 5 Kidney Failure, which will be life-threatening. Therefore, it is very necessary to take measures to prevent from the kidneys losing more function.
