Is There A Treatmet For Fatigue In Kidney FailureEven healthy people complain of being tired. But people with kidney failure can be so exhausted that they fall asleep during the day. Is there a treatment for fatigue in kidney failure?

What is the cause of fatigue in kidney failure?

One reason for fatigue can be anemia, a shortage of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Kidney failure patients often suffer from anemia because damaged kidneys make less of a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). EPO tells the bone marrow to make new red blood cells. Without a fresh supply of red blood cells, the body has less oxygen. This makes you more tired and cold, and less able to focus and fight disease.

What is the treatment for fatigue in kidney failure?

If your fatigue is caused by anemia, your doctor may tell you to inject EPO or man-made EPO. Besides, it is also important to raise low iron levels. Iron pills may help improve iron and hemoglobin levels. Many people with kidney failure need iron supplements and EPO to raise their red blood cell count to a level.

A dietitian may advice people with kidney disease who have anemia caused by iron, vitamin B12, or folic acid deficiencies to eat sources of these nutrients in their diets. Foods high in sodium or phosphorus should be limited in their diet.

Chinese therapies include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath and Enema therapy, etc. All the medicines are natural and without side effects. Our ultimate goal of our treatment is to help patients purify the blood, repair injured kidney tissues and then recover kidney function gradually. Recovering kidney function is the most radical remedy for anemia in kidney disease.
