The cause of fatigue in patients with kidney disease
Kidneys are important organs which balance the fluids quantity, regulate levels of various substance and keep the blood pressure levels in a normal range. Once kidneys are damaged, some functions fail to work well. Among them, one important kidney function is to make a hormone, named “erythropoietin” (EPO), which indicates your body to form oxygen-carrying red blood cells. With fewer red blood cells to carry oxygen, it is easier for your muscles and brain to tire. This symptom is also known as “anemia”.

-drugs therapy, such as “ESAS”, which can help your body to make blood red cells. In addition, extra iron may also be suggested. It is a assistant treatment to make sure ESAS works.

-diet management. Talk to your doctor and make a dietary management. Your doctors may suggested you to add some foods high in iron to your diet.
