Can Stage 3 Kidney Disease Make You TiredI have stage 3 kidney disease and am tired all the time. Is tiredness associated with stage 3 kidney disease? Doctor said that being tired is the number one compliant of patients they see. Well, what can cause tiredness in stage 3 kidney disease?

Tiredness can be caused by the following reasons:

1. anemia

Anemia is common in stage 3. One of its major complications is tiredness. Normally, kidneys will produce a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO) which helps make red blood cells that carry oxygen. In case of stage 3 kidney disease, the kidneys have been moderately damaged, so they will make less EPO. EPO tells the bone marrow to produce less red blood cells. As a result, patients will experience anemia, a short supply of red blood cells. besides, the body has less oxygen. This makes people more tired and fatigue as well as unable to concentrate.

2. wastes in the body

In stage 3 kidney disease, more and more toxic and wasteful substances will accumulate in the body, causing many discomforts on patients like fatigue, vomiting, nausea and tiredness.

3. declined kidney function

The root cause of tiredness is declined kidney function. Kidney function has close relation with the secretion of waste products and the health of other body parts.

If they want to get rid of tiredness fundamentally, you should treat kidney disease from the root. That is to say, you should repair damaged kidneys and improve renal function. Only when kidney function is improved, can extra wastes be secreted out of the body naturally and radically.
