Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-08-27 17:04

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is divided into five stages.When renal function decreases to 20% of normal,the patients develop stage 4 CKD. What is the prognosis of 20% renal function?

It is likely someone with stage 4 CKD will need Dialysis or a kidney transplant in the near future.As kidney function declines waste products build up in the blood causing an array of symptoms such as high blood pressure,bone disease,anemia,heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases.The patients may experience fatigue,edema,urination changes, difficult breathing etc.

The prognosis of 20% renal function varies from individual to individual. Some patients may have to start dialysis in a short time,but some can live a high-quality and long life as the general population.This is because the prognosis of the condition is affected by multiple factors.


The complications secondary to CKD in return can accelerate renal function deterioration significantly.High blood pressure and proteinuria are two important risks in worsening prognosis of 20% renal function. In addition, heart disease and other cardiovascular are major death causes of Kidney Disease.

Pathological category

There are different pathological categories of kidney disease. People with certain pathological type may develop Kidney Failure very rapidly. For example,FSGS patients with heavy proteinuria often develop kidney failure in less than 5 years. People with IgA nephropathy usually have a better prognosis.


Medicines and supplements are commonly used to treat stage 4 CKD with 20% renal function.They can mitigate symptoms and slow renal function decline to some extent.However,they can not improve renal function.Consequently,the patients have to receive Dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong their life expectancy.

To improve prognosis of 20% renal function fundamentally, the key goal of treatment is to purify the polluted blood and restore the impaired kidney structure. Polluted Blood Therapy is recommended to the patients and it can help achieve the above treatment goals to make the kidneys work more efficiently.
