Low Kidney Function Along with Shortage of Breath and FatigueA person with low kidney function is more prone to suffer from numerous symptoms and complications, among which shortage of breath and fatigue can affect patient’s health and life a lot. Here we will introduce its causes and possible treatments.

Kidneys are important organs that are endowed with numerous functions for maintaining our body health. Generally speaking, if patients are still in early stage kidney disease, they may be asymptomatic. However, when renal function decrease to 50% or more, the condition will have a big difference.

In Kidney Failure, the most common causes of shortness of breath and fatigue include:

Anemia: healthy kidneys are responsible for promoting EPO which is responsible for producing red blood cells. For patients with low renal function, the impaired kidneys cannot generate enough red blood cells to the body, causing anemia. Then, fatigue will occur.

Fluid retention: serious fluid retention can cause pulmonary edema or hydrithorax which will make kidney failure patients feel difficult in breathing.

Metabolic acidosis: kidney function is impaired seriously due to renal failure, disturbance of acid-base occurs. Large amounts of acidic material build up in blood, leading to metabolic acidosis. Shortness of breath can be easily induced by the metabolic acidosis. In addition, shortness of breath is always accompanied with poor appetite, vomit and fatigue.
