Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Stage 5: What does it REALLY mean and when to start dialysis
Episode 144: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Stage 5: What does it REALLY mean and when to start dialysis. Doctors today use 5 stages to describe kidney disease based on your eGFR. Stage 5 is often called kidney failure, renal failure, or end stage renal failure (ESRD). Many patients are told that stage 5 CKD (eGFR below 15) requires a transplant or dialysis. Retired Nephrologist and author of LEARN THE FACTS ABOUT KIDNEY DISEASE Dr. Rosansky explains why he disagrees with that statement. He explains why the need for dialysis and being "end stage" should be based on clinical symptoms, not just an eGFR level. When to start dialysis should not be based on your eGFR but instead on your symptoms and health.
