Managing stage 4 chronic kidney disease
Managing your kidney disease to slow down its progression is critical at CKD stage 4. In addition, treatment will be focused on the complications caused by CKD, such as anaemia and metabolic bone disease. At this stage, it is also important to focus on maintaining fluid balance to avoid fluid build-up in your legs or lungs.
Other recommendations include making changes to your diet, moderate exercising, stopping smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, maintaining a healthy weight, and monitoring other health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
