Why People with Stage 3 CKD Have Fatigue

2013-12-03 15:14

Why People with Stage 3 CKD Have FatigueFatigue is one of the common symptoms that many stage 3 CKD patients suffer from. It prevents them from having a normal life. Today let’s look at why they have fatigue and how to alleviate this symptom.

Why do people with stage 3 CKD have fatigue?

Fatigue in CKD is most often caused by anemia, a shortage of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. As we all know, kidneys are not only responsible for removing wastes and toxins out of body, but also release some hormone, including hemopoietin. When kidneys are impaired, the excretion of hemopoietin decreases. Less hemopoietin in turn means fewer red blood cells which deliver oxygen to your body's organs. If there are not enough red blood cells, your body does not get the right amount of oxygen, resulting in anemia.

How to alleviate fatigue?

Anemia and fatigue can and should be treated early to help you feel better and to prevent heart problems down the road.

-EPO may be prescribed by your doctor to help your body make red blood cells. This treatment will give you more energy, a better appetite, and greater stamina.

-If your body is low in iron or vitamins, your doctor may recommend you also take an iron supplement or vitamin supplement.

Besides, Chinese herbs are also suggested to treat anemia. They can dilate blood vessels so as to promote blood circulation. With the improvement of blood flow, ischemia and anoxia of kidney issues improve. These herbs can also improve kidney function and repair the damaged kidneys. Once your kidney returns to a normal state, you will not feel tired.

Please take good care of yourself when you feel tired and report it to your doctor early. Early treatment of fatigue can not only help you to keep doing the things you did before you have kidney disease, but also slow down the development to the end stage kidney disease. Only in this way can you live a normal life without being influenced by CKD. If you have any questions, please contact us.
