Why ESRD Patients Have Decreased AppetiteFor ESRD patients, they usually don’t feel like eating, which is a major manifestation of decreased appetite. Well, what are the causes? If you are not clear about this, please follow to find the answers.

ESRD is short for End Stage Renal Disease, which stands for CKD stage 5. To help discharge metabolic products, prevent complications and extend the survival periods of patients, dialysis may be firstly recommended. If the condition is too severe, kidney transplant will be suggested then.

Causes of decreased appetite in ESRD:

☆ High levels of toxins in the body When kidneys function normally, they can help create a favorable internal environment by removing metabolic products, excess fluid and reserving useful substances. However, in this advanced stage, high levels of toxins will build up in the body. When the digestive system is involved, decreased appetite will occur.

☆ Side effects of dialysis As mentioned above, dialysis is a common choice for these patients. And irregular dialysis can also lead to decreased appetite(usually occur when this treatment is over). In addition to this, other discomforts like headache, elevated blood pressure, blurred vision and muscle cramps can also occur.

☆ Anemia Shortage of red blood cells can be commonly seen in this advanced stage. Besides, dialysis also can aggravate anemia. When this appears, sufferers will experience poor appetite.

☆ Huge mental stress Plagued by a series of annoying symptoms and faced with so many drugs, they are more likely to have no spirit to eat.
