Causes and Treatments for Restless Leg Syndrome in CKD

2014-04-18 20:55| Font Size A A A

Causes and Treatments for Restless Leg Syndrome in CKD Restless leg syndrome is a condition that patients can’t help moving their legs constantly. Many CKD patients are suffering this condition. You can learn some useful information about causes and treatments for it.

The exact cause of restless leg syndrome is still unknown, while the following factors are closely related to it.

Low level of PTH

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is a hormone which participates in regulating the level of calcium in the blood. When there is a low calcium level, more parathyroid glands will be produced and it pulls the calcium from the bones into the blood and vice versa. As CKD patients usually are at high risk of bone disease, so doctors always prescribe medicines to lower the PTH level and this may be one cause of restless leg syndrome.


Restless leg syndrome always accompanies anemia. Though the direct cause of it is not clear, treatment with EPO and iron supplements still help treat RLS.

In conclusion, all the above possible causes of RLS are induced by CKD, so the complete solution of this symptom is to treat CKD.

An effective treatment---Blood Pollution Therapy, combining the advantage of Chinese and western medicine to treat kidney disease, will be introduced in the following content. This therapy treats CKD in three steps:

-Purify the blood

In this step, various blood purifying methods can be applied, according to patients’ condition. Through this step, patients can get a relatively clear internal environment.

-Supplement nutrients to the blood

In term of patients’ blood content, doctors will prescribe some supplements to patients to maintain the normal blood circulation. In this process, calcium can get to normal level and PTH will be normal accordingly.

-Improve the kidney function

As the blood circulation gets normal gradually, the kidney can get the necessary oxygen and nutrients. The damaged kidney cells can be restored and kidney function will be improved. When the kidney works normally, anemia can be alleviated effectively.
