I was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease recently with GFR 51 and creatinine 1.2.I feel very scarred and not sure what is going to happen next.Is stage 3 kidney disease reversible? Can I still live a normal life?
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is divided into 5 stages based on glomerular filtration rate (GFR).In stage 3 kidney disease,kidneys are impaired moderately with GFR ranging between 30~59ml/min.
In early stages of kidney disease,the kidney structure has not changed yet. Aggressive treatment can reverse kidney damage and help stop further kidney damage.However,in 1 and 2 stages of kidney disease,the patients usually have no symptoms.Unfortunately,most of the patients can not detect their kidney problem untile apparent signs appear.
Stage 3 kidney disease can be considered as a transition period.In this stage, a myriad of symptoms begins to appear such as swelling,anemia, early bone disease etc.GFR 51 and creatinine 1.2 indicates that your kidneys have not been impaired severely yet.You still have high possibility of reversing your condition.
Once kidney stage 3 kidney disease progresses into stage 4,the kidney structure will be impaired significantly.What you can do then is to delay your disease progression and delay the onset of Dialysis.When ESRD comes, dialysis and Kidney Transplant will be the final treatment option.
How to reverse stage 3 kidney disease with GFR 51 and creatinine 1.2?
Firstly,you should treat the conditions what cause your kidney problem such as Diabetes,high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders etc.
Secondly,control the conditions which can worsen your renal function. Anemia,proteinuria,swelling etc and other associated conditions of stage 3 kidney disease are risk factors in worsening renal function.
Thirdly,restore impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function. This step is plays the most important role in reversing stage 3 kidney disease. Once your kidney damage is reversed, your kidneys will be work better. If you, you will be able to live a normal life.
