Tiredness after Dialysis in Stage 4 Chronic Kidney DiseaseMany patients with stage 4 chornic kidney disease will experience diaysis. The feeling of tiredness after dialysis is more obvious. One just wants to lie on the bed doing nothing. Why does one suffer from tirednessafter dialysis? This article will give you some information about it.

Kidney funciton declines with the progression of the kidney disease. Kidney function is severely damged in stage 4 chronic kidney disease. So kidneys are no longer able to well perform their functions. One of the important functions of kidney is to secret EPO, the hormone that can help produce red blood cells by stimulating bone marrow. What is the funciton of red blood cells? They will provide us energy by carrying oxygen to the body.

So the answer is clear. Damaged kidenys cannot make enough EPO, thus there will be less red blood cells in the body and less erergy. Thereforew, tiredness will appear.

Then you may ask that why tiredness is more obvious after dialysis. Does dialysis help alleviate symptoms? It is resonable if you have these questions. It is believed that dialysis can help relieve some symptoms, but not tiredness. On the contrary, dialysis will worsen the state of tiredness. This is becasue some of the red blood cells will be discharged when you are on dialysis. Besides, dialysis itself is energy-consuming. It will take you 4 hours to do one dialysis. Some patients even need to do dialysis 3-4 times a week. After dialysis, you will have no energy to do other works.
