    What Preventive Measures Can CKD Stage 4 Patients TakeMost CKD Stage 4 patients are often told to prepare for the dialysis or kidney transplant because patients usually have advanced kidney damage with severe decline in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) to 15-30ml/min. In order to improve kidney function, what preventive measures can patients take?

    As kidney function declines, wastes products build up in the blood causing a condition known as uremia. In Stage 4, a person is likely to develop complications of kidney disease such as high blood pressure, severe anemia, bones disease, heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. To prevent these conditions, what we should do is to improve kidney function. Sincerely hope the following preventive measures can be helpful for you.

    1. See a nephrologist (a doctor who specializes in treating kidney disease)

    People in stage 4 CKD will usually visit their doctor at least every three months. It is important to do some tests like blood creatinine, hemoglobin, calcium and phosphorus levels, so as to reflect how well the kidneys are working.

    2. Live a healthy lifestyle

    Healthy lifestyle is an important part of home remedy. If you are a smoker, quit smoking; if you are a drinker, please give up drinking; if you live in the bad polluted environment, try to keep away from it. What’s more, it is important to have a regularly exercise. But what I want to empress that you should avoid strenuous exercises.

    3. Develop a kidney-friendly diet
