What is prediabetes?

Prediabetes describes the condition of someone who is on their way to developing diabetes. Before having diabetes, people usually have “pre-diabetes.” This is a name for a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. A person with prediabetes cannot handle sugar as well as they should. High sugar levels in prediabetes can cause problems throughout the body. One of the main organs that can be damaged is the kidney.

What will happen if you have prediabetes with CKD stage 3?

In the people with prediabetes, the stage of Chronic Kidney Disease is just as advanced as people with diabetes. Many people with either prediabetes or diabetes are found to have stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease. Among those patients, about more than one third of them with are found to have two signs of kidney disease:

- Protein in the urine (Proteinuria).

- Reduced estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR). This is a measure of how well the kidneys are functioning; the GFR tells the stage of kidney disease. In clinic, Stage 3 CKD has a GFR of 30-59ml/min.

What can you do to deal with this condition?

Since diabetes is the number one cause of kidney failure, you should prevent prediabetes develop into diabetes. Therefore, you must make your blood sugar under control, which requires you to control your weight, keep a healthy diet and get moderate physical activities.

What’s more, high blood pressure is a risk of both diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease. Thereby, you also need to control you blood pressure level within normal range.

Lastly, the most important thing you should remember is that treatment is required immediately to improve your kidney function. Otherwise, Stage 3 CKD will progress into stage 4 or stage 5 kidney disease (Kidney Failure) very easily and quickly.

To sum up, prevention and treatment are the two important things. You should talk with your doctor and do as what she or he tells you. You are also welcomed to consult our experts online.
