Development of Kidney Disease: Five Stage from Kidney Disease to ESRD

There are five stage from first stage kidney disease, kidney inflammation to end stage renal disease. Time in these five stage is different, and patients’ feeling also.

First stage: kidney inflammation.

Most patients are in this stage(some patients do not know they are already in ). It takes years from this stage to another stage, years or decades.

Patients in this stage seldom have complications, urine test may find protein or red blood cell positive, besides, edema is the most clear sign.

Second stage: pre renal insufficient stage.

From this stage, serum creatinine level start to increase, till 177 ummol/L. Kidney condition is okay, and complications is little or even has no complication. But it worth attention. Inner condition is not so optimist.

Third stage: post renal insufficient stage.

Creatinine level between 186 to 442 belongs to this stage. In this stage, the development of kidney disease start to accelerate(speed up), and complications start to occur. In this stage, find the official hospital, a good hospital to treat this condition, province owned hospital or so.

Stage four: kidney failure stage.

Creatinine 443 to 707 is this stage. It takes short time to develop into end stage renal disease, and complications can be various in this stage. There are some patients(particular patients) can skip this stage into end stage renal disease.

Stage five: Uremia.

When creatinine level is over 707, we may regard it as uremia. For a professional way, when GFR is less than 10, and medicine can not control the complications.

This is the end stage of renal disease.

Treatment should be used as early as possible. As we can see, complications start at later stage. Kidney function becomes less and less.
