I have been diagnosed with CKD stage 3. What is prognosis for progressing to stage 4 and 5 ?

I have been diagnosed with CKD stage 3. What is prognosis for progressing to stage 4 and 5   ?

CKD prognosis: The prognosis for the progression of ckd would depend on the causes of ckd and how well controlled the underlyng conditions are. All cause mortality increases as kidney function worsens. The leading cause of death in patients with ckd is cardiovascular disease, regardless of whether there is progression to stage 4 and 5. It's important to minimize cardiovascular risks and avoid nephrotoxic drugs. ...Read more

I have ckd, stage 3, I have noticed my hear is falling off since after diagnosis, has it anything to do with ckd? What am i supposed to do?

Hair loss happens: Hair loss is common. Mild/moderate chronic kidney disease is also common. The two are not usually connected to each. Scenarios where they could be connected would be: if both were due to chemotherapy, if both were due to radiation, if both were due to an autoimmune disease. Good luck. ...Read more

How much water is recommended to drink for someone with stage 3 ckd? Thank you.

How much water is recommended to drink for someone with stage 3 ckd? Thank you.

Drink Normally: Drinking more water may help some with CKD but not that much if you have CKD chronically already. Definitely drink a normal amount of fluid daily regardless and if you exercise drink more. The routine guidelines are about 6 glasses of water/fluid a day but that is not a hard rule. Also avoid NSAID medication like Ibuprofen and Naproxen and stick with tylenol (acetaminophen) which is liver eliminated instead. ...Read more

I'm 58yrs I have stage 3 ckd, creatinine has averaged 160 for last 7yr and efgr averaged 36-42. Is it predictable to say if kidneys will last.

I'm 58yrs I have stage 3 ckd, creatinine has averaged 160 for last 7yr and efgr averaged 36-42. Is it predictable to say if kidneys will last.

CKD stage 3: You need to be seen by a nephrologist (n) for an accurate answer. Your egfr is an estimate. You need to have a 24 hour for creatinine clearance and protein, as well as having some blood work taken. You may have hypertension and/or diabetes. If you have both, your kidneys may not last as long as if you had hypertension. After the n reviews your data, a more informed answer can be given to you. ...Read more

Can CKD stage 3/4 patients take herbal diuretics?

Can CKD stage 3/4 patients take herbal diuretics?

Herbal products: Hi. Herbal products are for the "worried well", healthy people who obsess about their health. For them, herbals are fine as long as they do no harm. You, on the other hand, have real disease. Since you're taking insulin, I assume your CKD is diabetic nephropathy. Control your diabetes and blood pressure aggressively. Take real medicine for real disease. Good luck! ...Read more

Stage 3 ckd, what foods should be avoided to help prevent progression? Pt not diabetic CKD cause still unknown

Stage 3 ckd, what foods should be avoided to help prevent progression? Pt not diabetic CKD cause still unknown

Low Sodium !!!!: A low sodium diet will lower blood pressure and theoretically decrease the pressure inside the kidney filters (glomeruli) slowing the loss of kidney function. Most kidney doctors recommend a low protein diet. The lab data supports this but human studies (mdrd) have not fully validated this recommendation. A new study reports that higher phosphorous levels associate with faster decline in functi. ...Read more

"if" nsaids caused me to have stage 3 ckd, and i stopped using them altogether could the egfr number & disease improve? Or is it likely too late?

Absolutely: Nsaids decrease renal blood flow and can reversibly worsen gfr. If stopped in a timely fashion, then kidney function can improve. However, if taken over an extended period of time, they can cause permanent, irreversible kidney damage. ...Read more

I have Stage 3 CKD. My creatinine is 1.27 and my GFR is 53. I also have HBP and take 10MG Novasc. I'm 28 yrs old and want kids. Should I have kids?

I have Stage 3 CKD. My creatinine is 1.27 and my GFR is 53. I also have HBP and take 10MG Novasc. I'm 28 yrs old and want kids. Should I have kids?

High risk: Only you can make that decision, but you certainly an make an informed one. The pregnancy is going to be quite high risk, and could certainly put extra strain on your current conditions. However, these can also be managed if you want kids. You need to start working with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at least six months before conception to ensure your body is optimal for a pregnancy. ...Read more
