Healthy kidneys produce the hormone erythropoietin that stimulates the bone marrow to make oxygen-carrying red blood cells. As the kidneys fail, they produce less erythropoietin, resulting in decreased production of red blood cells to replace the natural breakdown of old red blood cells. As a result, the blood carries less hemoglobin, a condition known as anemia. The patients often experience fatigue, pale face and shortness of breath due to this condition.
Skin itching can make the patients frustrated.It is attributed to a build up of phosphates in the blood the diseased kidneys cannot filter out.High level of phosphates can lower levels of calcium, thus resulting in muscle cramps.
