Can Elevated Creatinine And BUN Cause Fatigue

2013-12-06 17:20

Elevated creatinine and BUN is typical sign of kidney disease. Generally,the higher creatinine level,the more serious kidney damage. Can elevated creatinine and BUN cause fatigue?

Why does creatinine and BUN increase?

Creatinine is the byproduct of muscle metabolism.Urea nitrogen is the metabolite of proteins.In right condition,both creatinine and urea nitrogen are eliminated from body by kidneys.So the levels of creatinine and BUN in blood keep at a constant level.

However,as renal function decreases,kidneys fail to filter out the waste product from body properly,thus resulting in elevated creatinine and BUN.

Can elevated creatinine and BUN cause fatigue?

High level of waste products in body is one of causes of fatigue in kidney disease.It can cause a number of sleep problems. If the patients have a poor sleep,it can make them feel tired during daytime.

In addition,elevated creatinine and BUN are associated with serious kidney damage and reduced renal function.When kidneys fail to function properly,the patients will experience many complications.Anemia is a common complication of kidney disease and also a major culprit of fatigue in kidney disease.

Healthy kidneys can produce a horme called EPO.EPO can stimulate the bone marrow to produce red blood cells.The red blood cells can distribute oxygen to body tissues and cells. However,when kidneys are impaired,they fail to produce EPO. As a result,less red blood cells are made,giving rise to anemia. The patients with anemia can experience fatigue,dizziness,chill etc. If the anemia can be corrected, fatigue will be relieved.
