The Difference In Each Stage Of Kidney Failure?
What do you want to know about stage 1 kidney failure difference? and how is the treatment?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Kidney failure can be classified into acute kidney failure and chronic kidney failure. The 1-5 staging you mentioned is staging for chronic kidney failure. The difference from each stage is just how heavy the damage to the kidneys is measured using the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The following is a staging of chronic kidney failure (CRF):
Stage 1 CRF: GFR> 90 mL / min (GFR is still normal, but there are signs of chronic kidney damage such as the discovery of protein in the urine or physical damage to the kidneys)
Stage 2 CRF: GFR = 60-89 mL / min (there is a mild decrease in kidney function)
Stage 3 CRF: GFR = 30-59 mL / min (there is a mild to moderate decrease in kidney function)
Stage 4 of GGK: GFR = 15-29 mL / min (severe decrease in kidney function)
Stage 5 CRF: GFR <15 mL / min (kidneys are almost not functioning or not functioning at all)
Management of therapy in kidney failure must be adjusted to the condition of each patient. At the initial stage, therapy is focused on treating diseases that cause kidney failure (for example controlling blood sugar in diabetics, controlling blood pressure in people with hypertension, overcoming autoimmune diseases, etc.). This is intended to slow the progression of damage to the kidneys. Generally in the early stages, patients do not experience certain symptoms caused by damage to their kidneys, so they do not need special treatment for their kidneys.
In patients with kidney failure with severe kidney function decline, it is necessary to see what things are experienced due to kidney damage (can vary by patient). Therefore the management design of each patient with chronic kidney failure can also vary. For example, if anemia occurs, erythropoietin therapy can be given, if there is hypertension due to kidney failure can be given antihypertension, if there is swelling, urine can be triggered / diuretic, if electrolyte disturbance can be given certain electrolytes or certain diets that can help rebalance again the electrolyte disturbance conditions, and so on.
