Will Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) cause fatigue and muscle soreness? Yes, there is great chance that can happen. How does that happen? You will get the answer from the article. Any other questions, you can email to firstname.lastname@example.org or consult the doctors online.
Reasons for fatigue
For kidney disease patients, fatigue is not uncommon for them. This symptoms is always related to anemia. As you know, PKD is characterize by a cluster of cysts on the kidneys. These fluid-filled sacs can cause kidney damage. As a result, the injured kidneys fail to produce enough red blood cells due to EPO (erythropoietin) deficiency. Therefore, your body is short of oxygen. That’s why people always feel fatigue, even they do light work.
In addition, malnutrition and low immunity are also the possible causes of fatigue.
Causes of muscle soreness
The direct cause of muscle soreness is the secretion of lactic acid. This may be related to low-protein diet. This in turn will result in the muscles not getting the fuel they need. This can cause lactic acid to build up in the tissues of the muscles causing the familiar muscle “burn”, namely, muscle pain and soreness.
Hypertension, Acidosis or medicines can also lead to muscle soreness.
In fact, all the symptoms result from decreased kidney function. Therefore, the key of the treatment is to repair the damaged renal tissues so as to protect the remaining kidney function. In that case, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy that is the innovation of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nearly 30 years of clinical practices have proved this therapy both natural and effective. You can trust us, like other patients form more than 70 countries.
