Can Dialysis Make You FatigueIs fatigue experienced by dialysis patients? We know dialysis causes many side effects and fatigue or tired is a common side effect in people who have used both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis on a long-term basis. Here we’ll tell you why-and how to do.

1. What causes fatigue on dialysis people?

Generally, fatigue is thought to be caused by a complication of:

The loss of normal kidney function

Restricted dietary plan associated with dialysis

Many people with kidney failure experience will have stress and anxiety

Effects that dialysis can have on the body

2. How to help improve the symptom of fatigue?

Dietary change

You may talk with your doctor to see if your diet can be adjusted to increase your energy levels. For instance, you can eat more carbohydrate foods to meet your body need of energy.

Take exercise

Research has shown that regular aerobic exercise is able to improve the symptoms of fatigue. If you feel tired, it is difficult for me to start taking exercise. Many people often complain about feeling out of breath on dialysis. However, if you persevere, after a time of exercise, you will find exercise becomes easier. Besides, the aerobic exercise should be the most suitable for you, and aerobic exercise such as cycling, swimming, walking or runing is recommended for you.

Improve kidney function

As mentioned above, fatigue is thought to be caused by the loss of kidney function, so the key point is to improve kidney function to improve the symptoms of fatigue. To improve kidney function is the radical treatment to alleviate fatigue. In this light, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the most effective and outstanding option for fatigue patients on dialysis. As this therapy works to prevent anti-inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix and dilate blood vessels. In these ways, the damaged but not necrotic cells can be activated and renal ischemia can be alleviated. More importantly, the active ingredients in Chinese medicines can repair kidney damaged tissues and gradually kidney function is going to be increased. With the improvement of kidney function, fatigue or tired on dialysis people will be treated fundamentally.

Fatigue is just one of the side effects of dialysis. Apart from fatigue, blood pressure drop, vomiting, nausea and muscle cramp and so on are all side effects of dialysis. The root cause is the loss of kidney function. In this case, we recommend you to improve kidney function.
