    How Many Stages Are There for Chronic Kidney DiseaseChronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a disease characterized by a gradual of loss of kidney function over time. When diagnosed with the kidney disease, patients will also suffer from some changes. Actually, in different stages, patients will have different symptoms. Well then, how many stages are there for chronic kidney disease?

    Actually, the stages of CKD are mainly based on measured or estimated GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). Your glomerular filtration rate is the best indicator of how well your kidneys are working. There are five stages kidney disease but kidney function is normal in Stage 1 and minimally reduced in Stage 2.

    Stage GFR Description
    1 90+ Normal kidney function
    Mildly reduced kidney function and other findings point to renal disease
    Moderately reduced kidney function 
    4 15-29 Severely reduced kidney function 
    5 <15 or on dialysis Very severe, or end stage kidney failure
