Indeed, kidney failure patients will experience the leg and/or hand tremors. Some patients who are in our hospital also appear this symptom. According to clinical experience and research, our professional nephrologist point out several possible causes of limbs tremors in Kidney Failure.
1. Strict diet restrictions
It is a common sense that kidney failure patients should have a strict diet limitation so as to control illness condition well. However, the limitation on diet makes patients unable in ingesting adequate vitamin D. Especially, vitamin D3 plays an essential role for our body to absorb enough calcium. For kidney failure patients, their vitamin D3 level is usually lower than the normal range, which is easy to cause hypocalcemia and thus trigger limbs tremors.
2. Low blood sugar
For patients with Diabetes and Kidney Failure, trembling can be a symptom of hypoglycemia, which occurs due to excessive insulin in the body.
3. Electrolyte disorders
Electrolyte disorders can be commonly seen in kidney disease. For healthy people, ratio of calcium and phosphorus is always kept in s stable range. However, for kidney failure patients, the damaged kidneys fail to discharge excess phosphorus, leading to hyperphosphatemia and hypocalcemia.
Actually, apart from the above reasons, there are many other facts can lead to trembling on limbs, such as excessive caffeine or alcohol consume, stroke, low potassium, side effects of certain medications, fatigue, anxiety and so on.
