Does anyone on hemodialysis have a hard time sleeping? My legs and arms get restless and I do not feel like I used to like nice and sleepy.


Does Anyone on Hemodialysis Have A Hard Time SleepingSleep disorders are common in dialysis patients. Your physical and mental health can contribute to sleep problems.

1. Restless leg syndrome

Restless leg syndrome (RLS) can be caused by nerve damage from diabetes. Diabetes can damage tiny blood vessels and nerves. Besides, lack of erythropoietin is another contributor of RLS. A common complication of CKD is low iron levels of anemia. Healthy kidneys produce erythropoietin, a hormone that helps make red blood vessels. When the kidneys are damaged, they make little or no erythropoietin. With low iron levels and fewer red blood cells being produced, anemia can develop in the early stages of kidney disease and get worse as the renal disease progresses.

2. Inadequate dialysis clearance

A build up of waste in the blood can cause you to feel ill and uncomfortable. This could make sleeping difficult.

3. Emotions

Kidney failure patients often have worry, anxiety and sadness which can keep you up at night. In this regard, patients should have a good mood and be positive.

The most fundamental way to solve sleep problem is to get rid of dialysis. We strongly recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can enter into kidney lesion directly and have the function of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and removing blood stasis as well as providing nutrients, etc. Impaired kidneys can be restored to some extent and kidney function can be improved gradually. When kidney function is improved, it is possible for patients to avoid dialysis or at least reduce dialysis frequency. In this way, sleep problems will be alleviated effectively.
