2013-12-02 09:31

Why Do Patients Feel Very Tired after DialysisDialysis is needed when your kidneys fail to excrete the wastes and toxins out of body. But many patients on long-term dialysis complain that they feel very tired after dialysis. Why? Today let’s have a look at the manifold reasons.

Malfunction of kidneys

While dialysis is a life saving procedure, it can not substitute for a healthy kidney. Kidneys are not only responsible for discharging wastes, but also excrete hemopoietin, renin etc to regulate anemia and high blood pressure.

Restrictions on certain diets

Dietary and fluid restriction may also play a role in the experience of fatigue in dialysis patients. In order to improve fatigue after dialysis, high calories diet is recommended. Because part of protein loses during dialysis, you can increase the intake of high quality protein to 1.2 g/ kg per day. Besides, you can eat some food high in vitamin. The best way is to adjust your diet plan according to your state of illness,

Physical inactivity

Physical inactivity has been associated with higher levels of fatigue. In fact, regular exercises can improve your physical condition and boost your energy.

Low blood pressure

During dialysis, low blood pressure usually occurs due to too much fluid taking away from body quickly. The more fluid removed, the more tired patients may feel. So you should control the water intake between dialysis sessions.

Physiologic etiologies can also lead to tiredness after dialysis, including anemia, dialysis inadequacy, hyperparathyroidism, coexisting chronic illnesses, sleep disorders, depression and side effects of medications.

In fact, the fundamental way to improve fatigue after dialysis is to get rid of dialysis. To avoid dialysis, you should take measures to improve your kidney function. Natural remedies without side effects are suggested.
