According to the level of Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR), Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) can be divided into five stages. However, stage 3 CKD is a special stage, now here we will talk about stage 3 CKD and the life expectancy, hoping it can help you in some degree.
A person with stage 3 CKD has kidney damage with a moderate decrease in the GFR of 30-59ml/min. In stage 3 CKD a person is more likely to develop complications of kidney disease.
We call stage 3 CKD a demarcation point. Then why do we say that ? Stage 1 CKD and stage 2 CKD are such two stages that the conditions are not severe, and the illness conditions can be reversed in general. However, stage 4 CKD and stage 5 CKD mean much kidney function have been lost, it is nearly impossible to reverse the conditions. While for patients with stage 3 CKD, it is very necessary for them to receive the efficient treatments to control the development of the condition, otherwise the condition develops CKD 4. Stage 3 CKD has the certain possibility to be reversed.
As to the life expectancy for stage 3 CKD patients, it is hard to say. Different people have different conditions and results. Many factors can influence the life expectancy, such as the treatment you are taking, your living habit, the surrounding environment, your mood and so on. Even for dialysis patients, some can liver for more than 5 years, while some can not.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is commonly used to save patients’ own kidneys. It is based on Chinese herbal medicines, but used externally. Many foreign patients describe it as massage, very comfortable. As it can play some functions western medicines are unable to achieve, it is used to repair kidney damage and recover kidney function.
