Patients: My high blood pressure is uncontrolled in these years. My recent blood tests show creatinine 2.9 and kidney function 30%. I want to know which stage kidney disease it means.
Doctor: According to the level of kidney function or GFR, chronic kidney disease (CKD) is divided into five stages.
Stage 1 kidney disease: GFR is above 90 ml/min;
Stage 2 kidney disease: GFR 60-89ml/min;
Stage 3 kidney disease: GFR 30-59ml/min;
Stage 4 kidney disease: GFR 15-29ml/min;
End stage kidney disease or kidney failure: GFR less than 15 ml/min.
From the above analysis, we can know creatinine 2.9 and kidney function 30% means the critical point that stage 3 kidney disease will progress to stage 4. If left alone, your condition will be more severe.
Since your kidney disease is due to high blood pressure, to control it should be the first step. Medicated bath is one natural way worth a try. Put some effective herbs to your bath water, so they can help expand blood vessels largely. As long as blood vessels is expanded, blood pressure will come down spontaneously.
Besides, repairing damaged kidneys is also necessary to prevent stage 3 kidney disease from progressing to stage 2. Remember to consult the doctor before taking any medicine.
