Wish the patients with kidney disease a happy Christmas day ahead of time


Symptoms of Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD)

A patient with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD) has kidney damage with a moderate decrease in the GFR of 30-59 ml/min. As kidney function declines, waste products can build up in the blood, causing a condition known as “uremia.” In Stage 3, a patient is more likely to develop complications of kidney disease such as high blood pressure, anemia and/or early bone disease.
Symptoms may start to become present in Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD), such as:
1. Fatigue: Feeling tired is common for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD) and is often caused by anemia.
2. Swelling: 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.
4. Kidney pain: Most patients 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.
