    记忆力衰退Patients with stage 4 CKD are easy to have poor memory. Why? What are the underlying causes? Now this article will give you an introduction.

    Stage 4 CKD can be caused by the progression of various Chronic Kidney Diseases. In this stage, patients’ GFR, the main measuring standard of kidney function, can decrease to 16-29mL/min.

    Loss of memory is a very common clinical symptoms in stage 4 CKD. In normal, the kidneys can produce a kind of hormone named erythropoietin which can promote the secretion of red blood cells. Then, the red blood cells can send oxygen to many body systems. If the kidney function is damaged, the oxygen supply will be not enough and cause anemia. In mild case, it can manifest with headache, fatigue, drowsiness and so on. But in severe case, poor memory will happen.
