Fatigue and Headache in Kidney Failure

2014-03-03 03:28

fatigue and headache in kidney failure Fatigue and headache are two common complaints for people with kidney failure. These conditions can affect the patients’ life quality significantly. How to manage fatigue and headache in kidney failure?

Fatigue in kidney failure

A majority of kidney failure patients complain they have no energy to do anything. Some patients even leave their job due to the extreme fatigue.

Anemia is the major culprit of fatigue in Kidney Failure. The hemoglobin in red blood cells is responsible for distributing oxygen to body tissues and cells. EPO is produced by kidneys and it can stimulate the bone marrow to make red blood cells. However, the failed kidneys fail to produce EPO, thus decreasing the level of red blood cells. If the body tissues and cells can not get adequate oxygen supply, the patients will experience fatigue.

In addition, a restricted diet, frequent blood draw, high levels of uremic products in blood also can contribute to fatigue in kidney failure.

Headache in kidney failure

Low level of hemoglobin is one cause of headache in kidney failure. This is because the brain tissues and cells may not get adequate oxygen supply.

High blood pressure is another common cause of headache in kidney failure. As the failed kidneys can not remove the extra fluid from body, it can cause increased blood volume, thus leading to high blood pressure. In return, high blood pressure is a significant accelerator in worsening renal function.

In addition, if the high levels of uremic products build up in body, it may affect the nerves system. Hence, headache may result in kidney failure.

The above are the main causes of headache and fatigue in kidney failure. Since the underlying causes of the conditions are kidney impairment, to control them fundamentally, treatments should be applied to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function. If the kidneys can function more efficiently, the discomforts will be controlled fundamentally.
