Ways to Have A Sound Sleep at Night for Kidney PatientsAmong patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), the proportion of patients with sleep disorders is more than 60%. The main manifestations are insomnia, dreaminess and wakefulness.

Causes of insomnia in kidney patients

Kidney disease itself does not lead to sleep disorders. There are three reasons for insomnia.

1. After suffering from kidney disease, some patients are worried that they will not be cured and that they will progress to uremia, which makes them depressed and difficult to fall asleep.

2. Kidney patients are often with infection, hypertension and coronary heart disease, thus affecting sleep. The inadequate elimination of toxins in dialysis patients can also affect sleep.

3. Some of the drugs you take affect sleep, such as beta-blockers (such as metoprolol tartrate), methyldopa, Zhenju antihypertensive tablets and clonidine; diuretics (such as furosemide and hydrochlorpromazine); glucocorticoids (such as prednisone and methylprednisolone).

How to have a sound sleep with kidney disease?

Kidney patients usually do not require long-term use of diuretics, so you should actively discuss with the doctor in charge about the time of discontinuation of diuretics to reduce the impact of diuretics on sleep.

If long-term and high-dose steroids are being used, we can consider adding immunosuppressive agents and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to reduce the dose of steroids. It can also be changed to take steroids every morning or every other morning according to the condition, so as to reduce the effect of steroids on sleep.

In maintenance hemodialysis patients, the incidence of sleep disorders is as high as 80%. This part of patients with poor sleep can use long-term dialysis to ensure adequate dialysis, which is the key to ensure sleep.

As to the emotional factors, you should know how to adjust your mood. For example, you can talk with the optimistic people, take exercises regularly, do something you are interested, etc.

If insomnia is serious and the above measures are ineffective, medication can be used to treat insomnia. The commonly used sedative and hypnotic drugs are zolpidem, estazolam, zopiclone and amitriptyline. They should be used in a small dose and in a short time without impairing renal function.

Now you know the ways to have a sound sleep at night with kidney disease. Besides the above measures, you can try a systemic Chinese medicine treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment. It can help you repair kidney damage and promote renal function. For more information on our hospital and our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
