A person with stage 3 CKD has kidney damage with a moderate decrease in the GFR of 30-59ml/min.

While for patients with stage 3 CKD, it is very necessary for them to receive the efficient treatments to control the development of the condition, otherwise the condition develops CKD 4. Stage 3 CKD has the certain possibility to be reversed.

Many factors can influence the life expectancy, such as the treatment you are taking, your living habit, the surrounding environment, your mood and so on. Even for dialysis patients, some can liver for more than 5 years, while some can not.

If stage 3 CKD patients can take the efficient treatments in time, the kidney function is likely to be enhanced, then they can live a normal life as others do. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is commonly used to save patients’ own kidneys. It is based on Chinese herbal medicines, but used externally.
