Cause of sleep disorder
In Chronic Kidney Disease patients, sleep disorder can be caused by nocturia, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, and daytime somnolence.
Certain drugs can also affect the sleep quality. Any questions, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It appears that uremic toxins and volume overload may part account for the augmented risk of sleep apnea, leading to poor sleep.
Effects of melatonin on kidney
Melatonin is a hormone used as a medicine to improve sleep quality. Since it is mainly metabolized by the liver, it isn’t harmful for renal health.
However, melatonin will interfere with some other drugs such as beta-blockers and benzodiazepines. In addition, long term or large dosage of will produce more wastes that burdens the kidneys.
Improve sleep of CKD patients
First, in patients at risk, assessment of sleep apnea with overnight pulse oximetry is useful and may provide motivation for weight reduction. Better diabetes control, increase exercise, and other general measures.
Secondly, for those with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, they should take natural therapies to improve kidney function. From the above analysis, you can see that the root cause of sleep problem is damaged renal function. Then, the goal of treatment is to improve the renal tissues and accelerate the discharge of wastes and toxins in the body. I suggest Stage 3 CKD patients taking Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this therapy can not improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and degrading extracelluar matrixes. As a result, the kidneys can get enough blood and oxygen supply to function well. Then, wastes and toxins that damage your body can be discharged naturally and effectively. CKD patients who take this therapy can see both short term effects and long term effects, such as improve sleep quality, urine changes, good appetite and decreased creatinine and BUN levels.
