Question: I have stage 4 CKD and frequently experience weakness in my legs. What causes this and what can I do to combat it.

Leg Weakness and CKD Stage 4: What Causes It and What to Combat ItAnswer: CKD stage 4 means kidneys have been severely damaged so that massive wastes and fluid build up in the blood. The polluted blood can affect the normal work of many organs and then lead to a series of problems, one of which is leg weakness.

-Causes of leg weakness

It is mainly associated with anemia. The accumulated wastes can shorten lifespan of red blood cells, making their amount reduce. Besides, the damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. As a result, there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to muscles. And then you will have leg weakness. In addition, electrolyte disturbance, such as potassium decifiency and side effects of medicine can also lead to leg weakness. 

-Treatment to combat leg weakness

If you have anemia, you can take EPO or iron supplements to correct it, and then the weakness will disappear. But if you can not restore your renal function, it is difficult for you to get a permanent control. Here we recommend you to try a systemic treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy.

This treatment is composed of 9 therapies,

1. Double plasma exchange therapy

2. Chinese medicine detoxification therapy (oral Chinese medicine)

3. Chinese medicine for activating blood circulation (external therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, etc)

4. Cell (autoimmune cell) infusion therapy

5. Cytokine infusion therapy

6. Negative oxygen ion therapy

7. Ozone Therapy

8. Nutrient and vitamin supplements

9. Good living habit

The above therapies can work together to increase your urine output, improve your bowel movement, and make you sweat so that more wastes and fluid can be taken away from body. They can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokine and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the progression of disease. Moreover, they can dilate blood vessels and clear up stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that essential elements such as nutrient and vitamins can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. And good living habits can help reinforce the effect and prevent the disease from getting relapse. With treatment going on, you will become energetic, and your renal function will get improved.
