Brief Answer:
Life expectancy in stage 3 renal failure depends on many factors

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Life expectancy is shortened in stage 3 of renal failure.

This is related to the accumulation of toxins in the system due to the decrease of kidney function.

It is very difficult to confirm how long a patient will live with this disease.

It depends on many factors.

The age of the patient is very important.

Based on evidence studies for a 60 year old patient with stage 3 kidney disease, life expectancy would be 11 years

One of the most important factor is diet.

It is very important to eat high quality protein and low sodium in the diet.

I also recommend taking vitamins supplements such as C and B complex.

Regular exercise is also very important.

It is also very important to treat the other possible diagnosis that you may have such as high blood pressure.

With the is changes in the lifestyle the life expectancy should be prolonged.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
