2. Swelling(Swelling and Kidney Disease): The kidneys may lose ability to control how much fluid stays in the body. A patient may notice swelling in their lower legs, hands or face around the eyes. With too much fluid someone could even feel short of breath.
3. Urination changes: Urine may be foamy if there is protein in it, or dark orange, brown, tea colored or red if it contains blood. A person may urinate more or less, or get up at night to go to the bathroom.Ways to Slow the Progression of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Failure
4. Kidney pain: Most people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) do not have kidney pain, but with some kinds of kidney problems, such as polycystic kidney disease (PKD) or infections, they may have pain in their back where the kidneys are.
5. Sleep problems: Some patients have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. Itching, muscle cramps or restless legs can keep them awake.
As Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) progresses, the NKF recommends the patient see a nephrologist (a doctor who specializes in treating kidney disease). Nephrologists examine kidney patients and perform lab tests so they can gather information about their condition to offer the best advice for treatment. The nephrologist’s goal is to help their patient keep their kidneys working as long as possible.
