Why CKD Patients are Easy to Get Tired

2016-11-25 13:22

Why CKD Patients are Easy to Get TiredPeople with CKD may find they become tired or fatigue easily, but they don’t know why, not mention to deal with it. So today, i will share you something about it.

Why CKD patients are easy to get tired?

Actually, most of the fatigue is due to renal anemia which refers to low red blood cells in blood caused by kidney disease.

Healthy kidneys secrete a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO) that can stimulate bone marrow to produce red blood cells. When there is chronic disease in kidney, kidneys will make less of the hormone. Anemia is a shortage of red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen to all of the cells in our body and when there is shortage of red blood cell, our body cells can not get enough oxygen, and consequently, we become tired or fatigue easily.

How to deal with fatigue in CKD?

Kidney is responsible for secreting EPO, thus, only when kidney damages are repaired, can production of EPO be increased and also, can production of red blood cells be increased. Then, fatigue can be solved totally.

To have a tight control of renal anemia and protect residual kidney tissues from being damaged, some measures are needed

1. Have a regular and good bed rest

2. Make sure the supply of iron is sufficient

3. Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents are also helpful

4. Blood transfusion can be applied if necessary

In one word, for CKD patients with fatigue, they need to find out the root cause of the problem and then take measures according to the causes. Only in this way, can they receive satisfactory treatment effects.
