Stage 3 CKD

A person with stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD) has moderate kidney damage. This stage is broken up into two: a decrease in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) for Stage 3A is 45-59 mL/min and a decrease in GFR for Stage 3B is 30-44 mL/min. As kidney function declines waste products can build up in the blood causing a condition known as “uremia.” In stage 3 a person is more likely to develop complications of kidney disease such as high blood pressure, anemia (a shortage of red blood cells) and/or early bone disease.

What are the symptoms of stage 3 kidney disease?

  • dark yellow, orange, or red urine.

  • urinating more or less frequently than normal.

  • edema (fluid retention)

  • unexplained fatigue.

  • weakness and other anemic-like symptoms.

  • insomnia and other sleep issues.

  • lower back pain.

  • increased blood pressure.

What is the treatment for stage 3 kidney disease?

Stage 3 CKD doesn't require dialysis or a kidney transplant. Instead, you will be prescribed certain medications to treat underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to kidney damage.
