And red blood cells can send oxygen to all parts of body systems. But in stage 5 CKD, almost all of your kidney function can disappear. Thus the kidney will fail to secrete enough erythropoietin and finally lead to anemia and manifest with shortness of breath. Besides, shortness of breath may also happen when the wastes and toxins in body affect respiratory system.
