CKD stage 3: In CKD stage 3, GFR is 30-59 mL/min/1.73m2. Various physical discomforts begin to appear in this stage.

CKD stage 4: There is severe reduction in GFR (15-29 mL/min/1.73m2) when Chronic Kidney Disease progresses to stage 4. In this stage, patients are usually suggested to prepare for dialysis or kidney transplant.

CKD stage 5: CKD stage 5 or End Stage Renal Failure(ESRD) is diagnosed when GFR decreases to be lower than 15. Dialysis or kidney transplant are usually needed for life safety.
