Internationally, doctors judge the damage degree of kidney disease by GFR( glomerular filtration rate) besides serum creatine. According to GFR( glomerular filtration rate), CKD(Chronic Kidney Disease) can be divided into five stages. The normal range of GFR( glomerular filtration rate) is 80 to 120 ml/(min•1.73㎡), which shows the volumn of blood which flows into kidney per minute. GFR is a very scientific index which indicates how kidney is damaged and in other words, it shows how the renal function is.

In the first stage, GFR is normal or high, which is more than 90 ml/(min•1.73㎡). In the second stage, GFR declines to 60~90ml/(min•1.73㎡). In the third stage, GFR declines to 30~59ml/(min•1.73㎡). Patients fall into renal failure stage based on Chinese traditional standard. The serum creatinine rises to 442 to 707μmol/L(5~8mg/dl). The creatinine clearance rate declines to 20 to 10 ml/min. BUN ( blood urea nitrogen) increased to 179~286mmol/L(50~80mg/dl).

Patients with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) Stage 3 can also have some symptoms. They will suffer from anemia, balance disorders of water, electrolyte and acid-base. Suffering from these, patients with CKD(Chronic Kidney Disease) Stage 3 even loose confidence.

Factors that affect the progression of Chronic Kidney Disease should be taken into consideration and carefully eliminated. This is the first thing we need to do. Those factors may include its complications, primary disease, right diet, appropriate lifestyles, medications you take and how timely you receive your treatments, things of that sort. Ok, everybody knows that, so no longer to give unnecessary details. (If you do not know, sorry for that. Please leave us a message or send us email to, you will surely get our detailed explanation for free.)
