How to Reduce Restlessness in CKD PatientYou may be also wondering why CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) patients have restlessness and want to seek for the best treatment for this condition. If so, you can get some helpful information from the following article. Any questions, please email to us at or consult our doctors online directly.

Causes of restless in CKD patients

There are many possible factors that can lead to restlessness, or restless leg syndrome (RLS). According to survey, this problem may be caused by:

-Anemia. It is characterized by reduction of red blood cells, which are responsible for carrying oxygen to organs and tissues. It is very common in the early stages of Chronic Kidney Disease, and can get worse as the renal disease progresses.

-Low PTH (parathyroid hormone) level. This condition can lead to bone problems, resulting in restlessness.

-Side effects of medicines. Even though there is no clear understanding about the cause of restless leg syndrome, these findings are reasons for doctors to consider the prescribing of neuropsychiatric medicines.

Management for restlessness in CKD patients

As mentioned above, there are several possible factors that can cause restlessness. Therefore, treatment should be based on the real cause. It can be treated by your doctor with EPO or iron supplements; altering PTH treatment; changing the dosage of certain medicines.

You can also relieve this discomfort by some home remedies like:


-Warm baths

-Warm/cool compresses

-Relaxation techniques

-Changes to your sleep environment


The above methods can help you get a temporary relief but cannot solve the underlying problem. No matter what are direct causes of restlessness, the culprit is damaged kidney function. As long as medicines or therapies can help patients repair the damaged renal tissues, all problems can be completely relieved.

For that purpose, you are suggested to take natural TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). They can expand blood vessels to improve blood circulation, thus providing enough blood volume and oxygen for the kidneys. Therefore, the kidney function can be protected and enhanced.

As for you own illness conditions, you can get some guidance related to diet, exercise, medicines or some natural remedies. The online consultation service is free. Please remember to leave your email address, or phone number so that we can contact you and help you!
Please leave the patient's FULL name in case of a duplicate, and to make our doctor give timely response and help.
