How long before stage 3 kidney disease turns into stage 5 or end stage? Communicating with kidney patients, you may find some patients stay in stage 3 for more than 15 years, while some others’ kidney condition aggravates to end stage just for several months.
For all patients with CKD Stage 3, the level of their kidney function ranges from 30% to 59%. Since patients’ kidney function level is similar, why is the progress of their illness condition so different?
