How to Manage Fatigue in Kidney Shutdown

2014-03-14 08:48

Kidney shutdown is a condition, where the kidneys fail to function adequately as before. Fatigue is a common complaint in kidney shutdown. How to manage this condition?

Fatigue in kidney shutdown

Fatigue describes a medical condition, in which a person has no energy to do anything. It can affect the patients’ life quality significantly. Some patients with kidney shutdown may leave from their job because of it.

Fatigue in kidney shutdown can be attributed to a number of conditions. The major culprit is anemia. As the kidneys fail to work normally, the diseased kidneys fail to produce EPO. EPO is a kind of hormone which can stimulate the production of red blood cells. As the hemoglobin in red blood cells can distribute oxygen to body tissues and cells, lower level of red blood cells can cause less blood supply to body tissues and cells, thus leading to fatigue.

A restricted diet is required in kidney shutdown, especially a low-protein diet. As the source of the energy in body declines, the body can not get adequate energy. It also can contribute to fatigue in kidney shutdown.

If the patients with kidney shutdown are on dialysis, frequent dialysis treatments, removal of fluid from body and so forth also can contribute to fatigue.

How to manage fatigue in kidney shutdown?

If anemia can be controlled well, most patients can become better. Artificial EPO is generally prescribed. EPO dose should be prescribed based on a person’s specific condition. If EPO is used improperly, it will cause increased blood viscosity and hyperkalemia.

The patients should ask a dietitian and develop a balanced diet. The diet should not only reduce production of metabolic products, but also can keep the body healthy.

However, the root cause of fatigue and other associated complications in kidney shutdown is kidney impairment. To control fatigue, the best way is to improve renal function and regain its functions. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a best treatment option for the patients.
