Why I Feel Fatigue with Nephrotic Syndrome
Nephrotic Syndrome(NS), refers to a groups of syndromes mainly characterized by glomerular lesion. It can occur both in children and adults. Many people with this disorder always feel tired, then what are the possible causes?
Kidneys are two bean-shaped organs in our body. They can not only help excrete waste products and toxins out of the body, but also responsible for the production of a kind of hormone named Erythropoietin(EPO), which can stimulate the marrow to make red blood cells.
Causes of fatigue in nephrotic syndrome
In nephrotic syndrome, the filtering units named glomerular became inflamed and thickened. Then, the impaired kidneys can not produce enough EPO, so, less oxygen will be distributed to the other vital organs. When anemia occurs, patients are more likely to present a range of symptoms including fatigue, chill, pale look and so on.
Besides, patients with nephrotic syndrome are recommended to restrict the diet strictly, so low levels of iron and folic acid can be other causes.
What are the effective treatments?
Medications In most cases, patients are suggested to take some artificial EPO. Even if it can help activate the marrow to produce more red blood cells and alleviate fatigue largely, the root cause is still not resolved.
Hot compress therapy To alleviate this symptom fundamentally, the effective treatment should focus on two aspects, namely, repair the impaired kidney structures and restore kidney function.
It is an innovation of TCM, but used externally. During the course, two bags filled with herbs will be placed at the lower back. By extending blood vessels, reducing inflammatory reaction and providing nutrient substances for the impaired kidneys, the treatment goal can be achieved eventually.
