Stage 3 CKD
I have Stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD) and don't know what to do. I've been diagnosed by a nephrologist with high levels of protein (2400 mg in 24 hours) and creatinine 1.96. Will I need dialysis?
Please contact me through this forum ASAP.
A NOTE ON KIDNEY DISEASE STAGES:
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is classified into five (5) stages. Stage 1 is the mildest degree of kidney failure and stage 5 is the most severe. Each stage is determined by the level of kidney function.
Stages 1 and 2 are usually classified as mild, stage 3 is classified as moderate and stages 4 and 5 are classified as severe. These 5 categories help to determine the most effective treatment for patients with kidney disease.
For more information see the kidney disease stages page.
