Fatigue and Anemia in PKD

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-26 05:34

PKD is a progressive genetic disorder. As renal function keeps deteriorating, the patients will experience a myriad of complications and discomforts. Fatigue and anemia are commonly seen in PKD.

Fatigue and anemia in PKD

Anemia is a disorder, in which the level of red blood cells is lower than normal. Hemoglobin in red blood cells is carrier of oxygen and it is responsible for distributing oxygen to body tissues and cells. Without enough oxygen supply, the patients will become tired easily.

Anemia can commonly occur in PKD. That is the major of fatigue in PKD. Healthy kidneys can produce EPO which is a hormone which can stimulate the production of red blood cells. However in PKD, the enlarged cysts will replace more and more nephrons, thus leading to renal function decline. The diseased kidneys can not produce enough EPO, thus leading to decreased number of red blood cells.

Fatigue and anemia can affect the patients’ life significantly. It is an important reason for the patients giving up their job.

How to manage fatigue and anemia in PKD?

To manage fatigue and anemia in PKD, artificial EPO is often prescribed. This can stimulate the production of red blood cells, thus reliving anemia.

To manage fatigue and anemia in PKD fundamentally, the best way is to regain the secretory function of kidneys and make kidneys produce more EPO.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a recommended treatment for PKD patients. On one hand, this therapy can shrink the large cysts and stop the cysts from enlarging. On the other hand, the activate medicine substances can stimulate the self-repairing of the impaired nephrons. If renal function can be improved, the kidneys will function better to produce EPO. Hence, anemia and fatigue in PKD will be controlled effectively.
