Why sudden failure of kidneys

My kidneys were stage III for ten years then suddenly skipped stage iV and went to stage V with no advanced warning or cause. Was that an unusual sequence of failure?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

In your case, we cannot say why you skipped stage 4 and went from stage 3 to end stage renal failure.
What kind of treatments were you getting at stage 3? How old are you? How is your health in general, outside of your kidney issues?

Please give us more information so we can help you further. We look forward to hearing back from you.
