Symptoms of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

2013-07-03 15:16

Stage 3 chronic kidney disease(CKD) is characterized by a moderate decrease in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 30~59 ml/min.As renal function declines,high levels of waste products build up in the blood causing a number of symptoms.

Symptoms start to become present in stage 3 CKD, which mainly include:


Feeling tired is common for people with stage 3 CKD and it is often associated with anemia.Healthy kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin,which stimulates the bone marrow to make red blood cells needed to carry oxygen throughout the body.Impaired kidneys fail to make enough EPO,and bone marrow then makes fewer red blood cells. Without sufficient supplement of oxygen to body tissues and cells, the patients will experience fatigue.

Too much fluid

The diseased kidneys fail to control how much fluid stay in the body.The patients may gain extra body weight due to building up of extra fluid in body. The patients may notice swelling in their legs, hands or face around the eyes. If the lung is flooded with fluid, they may experience shortness of breath.

Sleep problems

Some people with stage 3 CKD may have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. The patients may suffer skin itching, muscle cramps or restless leg syndrome and these complaints can make them awake during night.

Changes in urination

Changes in urine color and output are possible symptoms of stage 3 CKD. If there is excess loss of proteins in urine, the urine will become forthy or foamy. Loss of red blood cells in urine can make the urine appear tea-colored or cola-colored.

If the above symptoms keep present for a long period, you should seek for further diagnosis to find out if they are related to stage 3 CKD.
