Q:

I feel very tired and weak after dialysis. Will this always be this way? And how do I explain this to my family to where they understand?

A:

Why Do I Feel Very Tired And Weak After DialysisIt is very common for patients to feel very tired and weak after dialysis. This is usually caused by the following factors:

1. Anemia

Anemia is a condition in which the body has few red blood cells than normal. And it commonly occurs in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This is because damaged kidneys do not make enough EPO which promotes the bone marrow to make red blood cells, carrying oxygen throughout the body. The signs and symptoms of anemia in someone with kidney disease include weakness and fatigue or feeling tired.

2. Electrolyte imbalance

During dialysis process, too many vitamins and mineral products will be removed out of the body. Under this condition, patients have a higher risk for electrolyte imbalance which is another contributor for being tired and weak after dialysis.

What is the treatment to alleviate weakness after dialysis?

The experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital in China suggest that the most fundamental way to avoid dialysis is to improve kidney function. Although kidney transplant can help patients stop dialysis, patients always need to take anti-rejection medications after transplantation. What’s worse, transplanted kidney has a large risk of being damaged again. Under this condition, patients have to take dialysis again or have another kidney transplant. Nowadays the natural remedy is preferred by more and more patients. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a therapy to improve kidney function through dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, providing sufficient blood and oxygen to the damaged cells and kidney tissues, providing a healthy internal environment to help impaired kidneys get self-repaired.
