It is known to all that stages of Chronic Kidney Disease are made in the light of GRF which is short for glomerular filtration rate. According to the international standard, when glomerular filtration rate decreases to the range from 30 ml/min/1.73m2 to 59 ml/min/1.73m2, then we can diagnose that this disease has run to the third stage. With the arrival of stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, some worrisome symptoms will appear and on the basis of these perceptible symptoms, we can infer how much our kidneys has been damaged.Fist of all, with the occurrence of stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, usually, some urination changes may occur to you. For example, while you are urinating, you may found there are foams in your urine, which results from the leakage of large amount of protein from kidneys. In addition, your urine color may appear to be brown, tea colored or even red. Changed urine color and foamy urine all implies that kidneys have been damaged greatly and they already can not keep some substances from being leaked out any more.Besides, you may observe that you eyelid and inside of ankles are swollen when you get up in the morning and then swelling are relieved in the noon. Normally, if you do some drastic exercises and physical works, swelling will be aggravated and then remitted after you have a good rest. For people with stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, swelling results from the retention of excessive water and sodium which should have been excreted by our kidneys. Salt is rich in sodium and ingesting too much salt means ingesting too much sodium, so that is the reason why patients are asked to limit the intake of salt.Moreover, as kidneys can not excrete the toxic substances out of our body, these toxins pile up in our body, which may affect the generation of blood, leading to the occurrence of anemia. With insufficiency of blood supply, people may feel very tired all the day. Therefore, fatigue is another symptom of Chronic Kidney Disease in stage 3.
