Why can extreme fatigue become a common symptom of kidney failure? There is no doubt that extreme fatigue brings so many limitations to kidney failure patients’ daily life and influences the prognosis of condition. The following information about causes and treatment for extreme fatigue in kidney failure can be very helpful.
Causes of extrema fatigue in kidney failure
Kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin which helps make red blood cells that carry oxygen. Kidney damage can slow down production of erythropoietin, which leads to a low red blood cell count. This causes anemia. There is decreased oxygen delivery to cells causing generalised weakness and extreme fatigue.
Kidney failure patients are commonly suggested to keep a healthy diet, especially a low-protein diet. If patients can not keep the protein intake right, malnutrition, anemia and extreme fatigue are likely to appear.
Treatment for extreme fatigue in kidney failure
From the information mentioned above, we can know that the best way to treat extreme fatigue in kidney failure is to improve anemia. While if the anemia is caused by kidney damage, then Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be recommended.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a new development of Chinese herbal medicines, but compared with oral ones, it is applied externally, which avoids the loss of efficiency of medicines and prevents the damage to gastrointestinal tract. Two bags filled with processed Chinese herbal medicines are put under the lower back of patients, osmosis device helps the active materials of Chinese herbal medicines directly get to kidneys and then play a series of functions to gradually repair kidney damage and recover renal function. With the recovery of renal function, the function to produce erythropoietin will be gradually recovered, thus improving anemia and then relieving extreme fatigue.
