In brief: CKD reasons

Stage 3 ckd, is a crcl or GFR of 30-59.
It is very very common. The most common reasons are damage from high blood pressure, diabetes, nsaids, recurrent utis, recurrent kidney stones. Less common reasons are prior episodes of kidney failure, autoimmune diseases, and polycystic kidney disease. Even more rare are cancer related or inherited conditions. Most with stage 3 ckd will never need dialysis.
