CKD Stage 3 Caused by FSGS

CKD Stage 3 Caused by FSGSChronic kidney disease (CKD) means that your kidneys are not working as well as they once did. Various conditions can cause CKD. Of which, FSGS kidney disease can cause CKD stage 3, Today we will offer you some information valuable about the CKD stage 3 caused by FSGS. First let’s learn what is CKD stage 3 and what cause chronic kidney disease?

FSGS is a kind of kidney disease, FSGS means scarring or hardening of the glomeruli -- blood vessels located in the kidneys. The glomeruli filter the blood as it passes through the kidneys. They remove waste fluids that then leave the body as urine. Damaged glomeruli can't perform their job adequately. As a result, large amounts of protein from the blood leak into the urine rather than remaining in the bloodstream. This leads to a condition called proteinuria. Over time, FSGS will result in a mild kidney disease, and finally lead to CKD stage 3

What is chronic kidney disease?.

Do you know CKD? CKD means that your kidneys are becoming aging and diseased or damaged in some way. As a result, your kidneys may not work as well as before, and also many functions of your kidneys will be affected. Some terms will be explained here:

1. Chronic means persistent or long-term, it will last for a long time. It does not mean severe as some people think, you may have a mild disease, many people have mild CKD.

2. Renal is related to your kidneys.

3. Chronic renal failure is similar to CKD, they means the same. CKD is a better term, as the word failure implies that the kidneys have totally stopped working. In most people there is only a mild or moderate reduction in kidney function, which usually does not cause symptoms, and the kidneys have not “failed”.

Stage 3 of CKD means: moderately reduced kidney function. (With or without a known kidney disease. For example, and elderly person with ageing kidneys may have reduced kidney function without a specific known kidney disease.)
