Chronic Kidney Disease Stage I to IV

Chronic kidney disease is a loss of kidney function, often progressive. This can happen over months or even years. The symptoms are not defined clearly and the disease is usually diagnosed in patients who have high blood pressure, hypertension or diabetes. People who are related by blood to patients who have chronic kidney disease are also at risk.

Professional guidelines have classified chronic kidney disease into five stages based on glomerular filtration rate. The first stage is characterized by normal kidney function. But abnormal creatinine levels in the urine and structural observations will point to the onset of the disease. The last stage is characterized by renal failure that is not reversible and may call for a kidney replacement. There is no treatment to cure chronic kidney disease but if some underlying cause is determined, it may be treated.
