Blood tests would help you to know whether your kidney shuts down or not. For example, if your blood creatinine is significantly increased, it means your kidney is shutting down.

No wonder. Kidney diseases is a silent killer. I have seen too many people diagnosed with kidney failure (CKD stage 5) without presenting any symptom.

For the treatment of CKD, it is mainly focused on modifying the risk factors for CKD, such as hypertension and high blood sugar levels.

Kidney disease can't be cured, but stage 3 means you still have an opportunity to prevent it from progressing. Treatment and lifestyle changes are essential at this stage. Your doctor will talk to you about using a combination of the following treatment measures.

Stage 3 kidney disease diet: It's important to eat more whole foods like grains, and to eat fewer processed foods and less of the saturated fats found in animal products.

A doctor may recommend decreasing your protein intake. If your potassium levels are too high from CKD, they may also recommend that you avoid certain high-potassium foods like bananas, potatoes, and tomatoes.

The same principle pertains to sodium. You may need to cut down on salty foods if your sodium levels are too high.

Weight loss is common in more advanced stages of CKD because of appetite loss. This can also put you at risk of malnutrition.

If you're experiencing appetite loss, consider eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day to make sure you're getting enough calories and nutrients.

Medical treatment

Stage 3 CKD doesn't require dialysis or a kidney transplant. Instead, you will be prescribed certain medications to treat underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to kidney damage.

These include angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) for high blood pressure, as well as glucose management for diabetes.

Your doctor may also prescribe medications to help alleviate the side effects of CKD, such as:

iron supplements for anemia
calcium/vitamin D supplements to prevent bone fractures
cholesterol-lowering drugs
diuretics to treat edema
