What to do if you have asymptomatic symptoms in CKD?

I'm 30 years old and have been managing Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) for the past 3 years. According to my blood test results, I'm classified as a stage 5 CKD patient. Surprisingly, I don't experience any noticeable symptoms typically associated with stage 5. My doctors have explained that I have asymptomatic symptoms. Can someone help me understand what this means?

  1. Hi How are you managing your condition so far do you have any Recommendations and asymptomatic symptoms means you don’t feel the symptoms I believe which isn’t uncommon i personal only found out because I was advised by my sisters doctor I never felt an symptoms but was actually already in the last stage of chronic kidney failure and went out dialysis. But if I may ask? what’s the next step for you as you’re at stage 5, are you currently stable?
    Thank You

    All the best

    1. Hello , Thanks for sharing this information. My youngest son also had asymptomatic symptoms. He had swelling in his legs, but that was it. By the time they found out what was going on he was stage 5. It all happened so quickly to me. The next thing I knew he was doing at-home dialysis 7 days a week. He went this route so that he could continue to work.

      How are you feeling and have you had time to decide on what treatment you are going to take? I know this is a lot. What does your healthcare team have to say about this?

      We hope to hear from you soon. Diane (Team Member)
