    At What Stage of CKD Do Skin Problems Develop

    At What Stage of CKD Do Skin Problems DevelopAt what stage of CKD do skin problems develop? This is one of concerned questions for people who are diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Because they are not willing to be tortured by this painful symptom. Here we will tell you the answer and hope you can prevent it effectively.

    In medicine, Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages according to glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Generally speaking, patients will not suffer from obvious symptoms until the illness condition develops into Stage 3 CKD. Since our kidney has strong compensatory ability, a half of renal function can guarantee our body health. However, for stage 3 kidney disease patients, their kidney function is kept in 30 to 59. Due to moderate kidney damage, kidney fails to regulate and maintain the minerals, electrolyte and acid-base balance. The main cause of skin itching is mainly the metabolic disorders of phosphorus and calcium, namely high phosphorus level and low calcium levels. Since the kidney damage is moderate, you may can feel slight itching.

    However, when you are in stage 4 kidney disease which the kidney function has been damaged severely. In this stage, the high phosphorus and low calcium level can be more obvious. In addition, more wastes and toxins will build up in the body, thus it will worsen the illness condition and you will suffer from severe skin itching.

    The most serious skin itching, called Uremic Pruritus (UP), occurs when the chronic kidney disease progresses into end stage renal disease (ESRD) or Kidney Failure. In this stage, kidney has already nearly lost all of kidney function and patients’ body will be in a low immunity status and bacteria, visa, or inflammatory will invade the body and cause more serious illness condition. Recent surveys reveal that UP is still present in 42-52% of adults with CKD. These statistics show that UP remains an important clinical symptoms and health issue in patients with CKD.

    Through the above analysis, we can see that skin itching can occur in stage 3 kidney disease even more advanced stage. Therefore stage 3kidney disease is one of critical period to take measures to eliminate the skin itching.
