    Will Patients with Early Stage 4 CKD Need DialysisDialysis is an important therapy for patients with CKD, and it is needed when patient’s kidney function is very low. On the other hand, kidney disease is divided into five stages, and stage 4 CKD means patient’s kidney function is damaged severely at this point.

    As we have said, dialysis is used to correct the metabolic disorders in patient’s body, and it will be needed when patients are in the late stages of CKD.

    In fact, dialysis is usually recommended when patients have 15% remaining kidney function, and that means patients are in the late stage of stage 4 CKD. Besides, different patients have different conditions, and some patient’s can have no obvious symptoms even they are already in the end stage of CKD.

    But some patients have poor habitus, and they may have severe complication even they have early stage 4 CKD. To control patient’s condition, it is necessary for patients to accept dialysis to correct their metabolic disorders.

    Thereby, most patients will not need dialysis if they have early stage 4 CKD, but some patients will also need dialysis if their condition is already very severe at this point.
