    What does this condition mean?

    In medical community, kidney disease is divided into five stages according to glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The normal renal function is about 90 to 120ml/min. As for GFR 51, it is much lower than the normal range and this condition is in the Stage 3 Kidney Disease which has moderate kidney damage. Moreover, this stage is further broken up into two:a decrease in glomerular filtration rate for Stage 3A is 45-59ml/min and a decrease in GFR for Stage 3B is 30-44ml/min. We can see that both GFR 41 and GFR 47 are in the stage 3A kidney disease. Actually, our kidney has strong compensatory ability and half of renal function can guarantee our body health. In other words, patients begin to suffer from some symptoms in this stage, because the kidney has lost half of renal function. And this time, patients will experience symptoms like high blood pressure, swelling, anemia, little proteinuria and so on. It is one of critical periods to take measures as as to stop or delay the progression of illness condition.
