Does Dialysis Make Your Muscles Weak“I have been experiencing muscle weakness in my arms and legs after dialysis.” This is a common complaint of dialysis patients. Does dialysis make your muscles weak? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

Muscle weakness is a common side effect of dialysis.

-When you have to do dialysis, it indicates that your kidneys are severely damaged. The damaged kidneys can not make enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. And the accumulated waste products in the blood can also inhibit the bone marrows to make blood. Besides, because of poor appetite, patients can not absorb enough nutrients, such as vitamin C and protein, which can make anemia worse. Muscle weakness is a clinic manifestation of anemia.

-The damaged kidneys can not activate vitamin D so that our body can not absorb enough calcium to strengthen bones. Calcium deficiency can cause muscle weakness.

How to relieve muscle weakness for dialysis patients?

-If it is caused by anemia, you should supplement EPO and iron tablets. You should also regulate your diet to absorb enough balanced nutrients.

-If it is caused by calcium deficiency, it is necessary for you to supplement activated vitamin D to improve calcium level in the blood.

-Doing some mild exercise in the daily can make your muscles strong so as to improve this medical condition.
