A person with stage 4 chronic kidney disease has advanced kidney damage with a severe decrease in the GFR to 15-30ml/min. It is likely someone with this stage will need dialysis or a kidney transplant in the near future. As for Stage 5 CKD, it is also called end stage renal disease (ESRD) with GFR of 15ml/min or less. At this advanced stage of kidney disease, the kidneys have lost nearly all their ability to do their job effectively.
