The Progression of Symptoms with Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease is a progressive illness. That means that it gets worse with time.

Some illnesses, including chronic kidney disease, can be slowed or even halted in their progression by making strict changes to your diet and lifestyle.

What is GFR? There are many factors that go into calculating the glomerular filtration rate, or GFR.

Normal or high GFR (GFR > 90 mL/min). Most often, people do not find out that they have kidney disease until stage 2 or later because the kidneys are still functioning well.

Mild CKD (GFR = 60-89 mL/min). Very few to no symptoms are typically present in the second stage of kidney disease, but it is easily detectable through routine testing.
