    Why Patients with 4 CKD Have Severe Fatigue

    2014-05-06 03:09| Font Size A A A

    Why Patients with 4 CKD Have Severe Fatiguechronic kidney disease is divided into five stages, and stage 4 is a late stage, which indicates patient has severe kidney damage at this point. Kidney is an important organ for our body health, which is in charge of regulating our internal metabolic balances. As a result, patients with stage 4 CKD will have obvious symptoms in their body.

    As a matter of fact, a common symptom of stage 4 CKD is fatigue, and patients with stage 4 CKD can have severe fatigue. Well then, why patients with stage 4 CKD can have severe fatigue?

    What causes patients with kidney disease to have fatigue?

    In fact, Fatigue in CKD patients is mainly due to anemia, which is a common complication, and anemia in patients with kidney disease is caused by the shortage of red cells in blood.

    Red cells can transport oxygen to our body tissues and cells, and oxygen is needed in the process of metabolism, which can produce energy for our body activity. As a result, when patient has anemia, the metabolism in patient’s body will also be affected, and that can cause patients to have fatigue.

    Why patients with stage 4 CKD can have severe fatigue?

    Kidney has the function of secreting hemopoietin, which plays a key role in the process of producing red cells. When patient’s kidney function is damaged, that will reduce the hemopoietin secretion, and patients will have anemia easily.

    Besides, when patients are in CKD stage 4, their kidney function is damaged severely at this point, and lots of metabolic wastes will accumulate in patients’ body. Many toxins can damage patient’s red cells, which can reduce the living time of red cells. That can also aggravate patient’s fatigue.
