    Kidney disease is generally divided into five stages and each stage has the different illness condition. In medicine, there are many indexes to measure the kidney function. For example:

    Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the an reliable indicator to reflect how well your kidneys are working. In a word, the more lower glomerular filtration rate, the more severer illness condition will be. The normal range of GFR is about 90-120 which means that you are in the Stage 1 Kidney Disease and kidney can still work normally and patients have no symptoms. Stage 2 kidney disease (GFR 60-89) patients don’t experience the obvious symptoms. However, when illness condition progress into Stage 3 Kidney Disease (GFR 30-59), patients will begin to suffer from some symptoms like blood urine, protein in urine, high blood pressure, anemia, fatigue and so on. Stage 4 (GFR 15-29) and Stage 5 (GFR less than 14) can be more serious. If left untreated, dialysis or kidney transplant can be applied.

    In addition, Creatinine level and BUN (blood urea nitrogen) level can be regarded as the indicators to measure your kidney function. Through the three indexes, you can correctly know what the kidney disease stage you are in.

    Except for the mentioned above, some testes also can be helpful for knowing the degree of kidney damage, such as urine tests, blood tests, etc. If the kidney damage is formed, kidney biopsy is recommended to be done.
