Why Do I Experience Tiredness after Dialysis

2014-03-09 22:40

Why Do I Experience Tiredness after DialysisAs we all know, dialysis is a replacement treatment for kidney disease, especially kidney failure. But dialysis can also bring a series of discomforts. Many patients will feel more tired after dialysis. Why do you experience tiredness after dialysis?

Since you are taking dialysis now, your condition may have been worsened. It is known to all that kidneys can filter the waste products in our blood. But you may not know that Kidneys are also responsible for secreting hormones to keep us healthy. EPO is one of the important hormones that kidneys secret. The main aim of is to help stimulate bone marrow to produce red blood cells, which will provide us energy to do daily activities.

However, your failed kidneys cannot secret enough EPO. As a result, there will be less red blood cells. The lack of red blood cells will lead to anemia, which is the main cause of tiredness.

Dialysis will increase the feeling of tiredness because some of the red blood cells will be lost through dialysis. What’s more, dialysis itself is energy-consuming. Usually, you will stay on dialysis 4-5 hours once and you may feel even tired after dialysis. This is why you experience tiredness after dialysis.

Then how to relieve tiredness?

You may need to lie on bed for a recovery. You’d better not do heavy work. You are also suggested to eat foods that are rich in iron, folic acid and vitamin B12. These foods can help produce red blood cells.

If you want to solve this problem fundamentally, you should start from improving kidney function. You should consider some natural remedies, such as Hot Compress Therapy. It is an external application of traditional Chinese medicine. If you want to know the specific information about this therapy, you can send me an email to for consultation!
