If you are a patient with kidney disease who are on dialysis, you must feel tired after dialysis. Why does a person get tired after dialysis? In this article, I will give you a detailed introduction.
Usually, dialysis is used when patients with kidney disease are troubled by obvious symptoms or kidney function drops to 15% or even below. Adequate dialysis can help kidneys discharge extra toxins and water as well as the electrolyte in blood to keep normal life. However, dialysis will bring patients a series of side-effects, which will do a lot of harm to patients.
The followings are the possible causes of tiredness after dialysis.
Anemia. Kidneys are responsible to secrete hormones to meet the basic need of our body. EPO is one of the hormones that can stimulate bone marrow to produce red blood cells. Red blood cells will carry oxygen to all parts of our body. Damaged kidneys are not able to secrete enough EPO. As a result, red blood cells are reduced. So you may develop anemia.
Dialysis will worsen the condition of anemia because some red blood cells will be lost through dialysis. There will be less energy to do things. So you may feel tired after dialysis.
Dehydration. Many dialysis patients will suffer from dehydration during dialysis. This is because dialysis will remove a large amount of water in blood especially when you drink a lot of water during dialysis intervals. The sudden loss of water will lead to dehydration in some conditions, which will make you feel tired.
All in all, dialysis is an energy-consuming treatment. Some patients will take dialysis 3-4 times a week and it takes several hours once. So patients are easily get tired after dialysis.
