Stage 3 CKD, Kidney Function 48%: Is It Reversible and How Bad Is This?

Last week I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. My doctor told me I am at 48% function. He said it wasn’t reversible. Is this true? Also, how bad is this?

The Doctor Answered:

Stage 3 CKD, Kidney Function 48%: Is It Reversible and How Bad Is This?Your kidney function is 48%, which indicates that you are in stage 3 CKD.

How bad is CKD stage 3?

Although there is usually a pair of kidneys in body, one kidney can maintain the normal function of body, because kidney has immense compensatory ability. Now your kidney function is 48%. Maybe you do not have any symptoms. Even though you have any of them, the symptoms are very slight. Therefore, it is unnecessary for you to worry too much about your disease. What you should do is to control those symptoms and halt the progression of kidney disease.

Is CKD stage 3 reversible?

Because some kidney tissues have been so severely damaged that they have been beyond the self-healing ability, CKD stage 3 can not be cured. That may be why your doctor told you that it is reversible. But there are some kidney tissues that are slightly damaged, with proper treatment, this part of kidney tissues can be repaired. That is to say, it is possible for you to restore a portion of renal function.

Treatment for CKD stage 3

Besides symptomatic treatment, we suggest you to try Toxin-Removing Therapy, also known as Detoxification Therapy. This is a systemic treatment, which is composed of several therapies, such as plasma exchange, oral Chinese medicine, external Chinese therapies (like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, etc), Cytokine Infusion Therapy, Ozone Therapy, Negative Oxygen Ion Infusion Therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to increase urine output, improve bowel movement and make you sweat so as to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body. They can also expand blood vessels and clear up stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that essential elements, such as oxygen, nutrients, active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and prevent the disease from getting worse.

-After about one week’s treatment, swelling will fade away. And you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

-After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria, high blood pressure, anemia, back pain and so on will get relieved.

-After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
