Why People with Stage 3 CKD Have Fatigue
In Stage 3 CKD, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) level is 30-59ml/min, and it represents moderate loss of kidney function. As the disorder progresses, a series of symptoms including fatigue will occur. In this article, we will introduce its causes and treatments.
What causes fatigue in stage 3 CKD?
Kidneys are significant organs in our body, they can not only discharge metabolic products and toxins out of the blood, but also can produce a kind of hormone known as Erythropoietin.
In stage 3 CKD, the damaged kidneys fail to work adequately, then, there will be less EPO and red blood cells. If left untreated, anemia will come into being. After clinical research, experts at our Huaxia Kidney Disease Hospital concluded that anemia is the main cause of fatigue.
How to eliminate fatigue in stage 3 kidney disease?
Proper diet To alleviate anemia, a proper diet is very significant. Here, we suggest patients to eat some whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, but not all the fresh fruits and vegetables are suggested, as some are loaded in potassium or phosphorus.
Medicines In some cases, doctors may prescribe patients with some EPO or iron pills to help treat fatigue.
Effective treatment After the above analysis, we can realize that the core of treatment should not merely eliminating symptoms but also repair kidney damage. Once kidney function is restored, kidneys can work normally and produce enough EPO. A plant-based therapy named Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be a good choice. It is convenient, comfortable and without side effects. For more detailed information, you can email us:email@example.com and we will reply you within 48 hours.
