CKD Stage 4 and Fatigue

CKD Stage 4 and Fatigue“I always feel fatigue”, “I don’t want to do any work, exercise or study, because I has no energy.” If you are at CKD Stage 4, you must have similar problems that are due to patients’ easy tiredness.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Qi is the energy in our body. Easy fatigue means patients are at a condition in which their bodies are lack of Qi. What puts stage 4 chronic kidney disease patients in this state?

The main reason is renal anemia. As we know, kidneys can secrete one specific hormone, called EPO. This hormone is responsible for stimulating the body to produce red blood cells. However, in stage 4 chronic kidney disease, about 70%~85% of kidney function is damaged, so they are unable to produce EPO correctly, resulting in fewer red blood cells production. Because red blood cells transport blood and oxygen to functioning cells all over the body, lack of red blood cells can cause anemia as well as fatigue eventually.

Additionally, deposits of waste products and toxins can also aggravate anemia, because they can shorten the lifespan of red blood cell.

After getting the causes of fatigue for Stage 4 CKD patients, the next thing we need to do is to manage this problem. The management should begin from developing a healthy diet plan, cleansing the internal environment and supplementing EPO.

To arrange a diet for controlling anemia, foods with rich iron and folic acid should be added into the diet. To cleanse blood, oral medications, Enema Therapy, Medicated Bath, Circle Therapy, etc may be taken. As for supplementing EPO, EPO injection is helpful. These methods indeed can help alleviate patients’ fatigue. However, if you want to get rid of anemia and fatigue, some treatments that can reverse stage 4 chronic kidney disease should also be sought.
