What are the 5 stages of kidney disease?
Five stages of chronic kidney disease
- Stage 1 with normal or high GFR (GFR > 90 mL/min)
- Stage 2 Mild CKD (GFR = 60-89 mL/min)
- Stage 3A Moderate CKD (GFR = 45-59 mL/min)
- Stage 3B Moderate CKD (GFR = 30-44 mL/min)
- Stage 4 Severe CKD (GFR = 15-29 mL/min)
- Stage 5 End Stage CKD (GFR <15 mL/min)
What are the signs and symptoms of stage 5 kidney disease?
Common symptoms to have in stage 5 kidney disease, or kidney failure, include:
- Loss of appetite.
- Nausea or vomiting.
- Fatigue or tiredness.
- Back pain.
- Difficulty concentrating.
- Unable to urinate or urinating very little.
How long can you live with stage 2 kidney disease?
Generally speaking, a 40-year-old man with stage 2 CKD can anticipate living an additional 30 years after diagnosis. Alternatively, a 40-year-old woman can expect to live another 34 years. As previously mentioned, not all cases progress beyond these early stages of chronic kidney disease.
What happens when your kidneys start shutting down?
If your kidneys stop working completely, your body fills with extra water and waste products. This condition is called uremia. Your hands or feet may swell. You will feel tired and weak because your body needs clean blood to function properly.
Is Stage 3 kidney disease a death sentence?
Having kidney failure is not a death sentence. People with kidney failure live active lives and continue to do the things they love.
How much water should a CKD patient drink a day?
When you have kidney disease stages 1 and 2, it is important to drink enough water—around 64 ounces, or eight glasses every day. This will help keep your kidneys hydrated and working well.
How long can a person live when kidneys shut down?
People with kidney failure may survive days to weeks without dialysis, depending on the amount of kidney function they have, how severe their symptoms are, and their overall medical condition.
What is the life expectancy of someone with Stage 3 kidney disease?
For stage 3 kidney disease, her life expectancy would be 11 years. In short, women have a slightly greater life expectancy at all ages. But during stages 4 and 5, those advantages slip away, and life expectancy becomes essentially identical between the sexes.
What to expect at Stage 5 kidney disease?
A person with stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) has end stage renal disease (ESRD) with a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 15 ml/min or less . At this advanced stage of kidney disease, the kidneys have lost nearly all their function, and eventually dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to live.
What is the prognosis for Stage 5 kidney disease?
When end stage renal failure (stage 5 chronic kidney disease) goes untreated, survival prognosis is usually a few months or less.
What are the 5 levels of kidney disease?
Below shows the five stages of CKD and GFR for each stage: Stage 1 with normal or high GFR (GFR > 90 mL/min) Stage 2 Mild CKD (GFR = 60-89 mL/min) Stage 3A Moderate CKD (GFR = 45-59 mL/min) Stage 3B Moderate CKD (GFR = 30-44 mL/min) Stage 4 Severe CKD (GFR = 15-29 mL/min) Stage 5 End Stage CKD (GFR <15 mL/min)
