Polycystic Kidney Disease and Extreme FatigueDo you often feel extreme fatigue with PKD? Do you know what causes your fatigue? In this article, we will discuss about polycystic kidney disease and extreme fatigue.

Extreme fatigue may be associated with anemia.

As PKD progresses, the kidneys will be damaged by the growing renal cysts, so they can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells. And the accumulated waste products can also shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. When the amount of red blood cells decreases, they can not transport enough oxygen to muscles, and then you get fatigue easily.

Other causes of fatigue for PKD patients

Physical inactivity and malnutrition are also the common causes of fatigue for kidney patients. If you can not take part in exercises for a long time, and you can not supplement enough nutrients, you will easily get tired.

How to relieve your fatigue and make PKD better?

-To supplement EPO and iron to improve anemia.

-To improve renal function is also helpful for you to boost energy. For PKD patients, to improve renal function, the first thing to do is to stop the growth of renal cysts and shrink them. In Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is often used. This is an external application of herb medicine, which has been fined into powder. With the help of osmosis devices, the active ingredients of medicine can be transported into polycystic kidneys directly. This treatment can restrain the activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to prevent renal cysts from growing further. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out, and then renal cysts will shrink. After about one week’s treatment, your back pain will be relieved. After about half month’s treatment, you will feel energetic. After about one month’s treatment, your renal cysts will shrink, and renal function will get improved. With the treatment going on, your condition will get better.
