What Comes After Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease
Many people with stage 3 kidney disease do not have any symptoms. But if there are symptoms, some of the more common ones are:
Swelling in the hands and feet
Urinating more or less than normal
By stage 3 kidney disease, you are more likely to have health complications as a result of wastes building up in your body. Common complications from kidney disease are high blood pressure, anemia and bone disease.
What to do for kidney disease stage 3?
1. Diet management
Eat the right kinds of fats
If you have cardiovascular disease or your blood cholesterol is high, unhealthy fats-such as saturated fats and trans-fats-should be replaced by poly-and monounsaturated fats from vegetable oil, canola oil and olive oil. A limit on high cholesterol foods is recommended.
Watch your fluid intake
Fluid is not limited in stage 3 CKD unless you experience fluid retention. Weight gain, shortness of breath, swelling in the feet, hands and face, and high blood pressure are signs of fluid retention.
Reduce your phosphorus intake
A diet with no more than 800mg of phosphorus can help reduce the risk of too much phosphorus building up in your blood. Limit high phosphorus foods like organ meats, whole grain breads, processed foods, cola beverages, cheese, dried beans, liver, peanut butter, dairy products and chocolate.
Decrease your sodium intake
Limit salt and high-sodium foods to reduce hypertension. The sodium recommendation for stage 3 CKD is 1,000 to 4,000mg/day.
The radical treatment for kidney disease is to repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Here we recommend Chinese Medicine Treatment including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture and Steaming Therapy, etc. They first purify the blood and then enter your kidney lesion directly to restore injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. In this way, CKD stage 3 can be reversed effectively.
