Stage 2 CKD means you have mild kidney damage and an eGFR between 60 and 89. Most of the time, an eGFR between 60 and 89 means your kidneys are healthy and working well. But if you have Stage 2 kidney disease, this means you have other signs of kidney damage even though your eGFR is normal.
What are the symptoms of stage 2 kidney disease?
darker urine that may range in color between yellow, red, and orange.
increased or decreased urination.

fluid retention (edema)
pain in the lower back.
muscle cramps at night.
