How does shortness of breath occur?

A. In stage 4 chronic kidney disease, kidneys function is severely damaged. Kidneys are responsible to secrete hormones to keep the body healthy. EPO is one of the important hormones that will stimulate bone marrow to produce red blood cells.

So our body will be in a condition of hypoxia, which will bring you short of breath.

B. Pulmonary edema is one of the severe complications of kidney disease. Shortness of breath is the marked feature of pulmonary edema.
