Why do IgA Nephropathy patients have weakness?

In early stage of IgA Nephropathy, patients usually don’t have fatigue and weakness, because kidneys can still work normally. However, with the decline of kidney function, weakness may appear because of the following conditions.

* Malnutrition: To reduce the burden on kidneys, patients are always required to limit their protein intake. If the protein intake can’t meet the body’s need, malnutrition may occur easily. Therefore, the body can’t get enough energy from the diet, and then they feel weak all the times.

* Lack of EPO: When kidneys are damaged by inflammatory reactions, diseased kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, resulting in the less formation of red blood cells. Then, less nutrition and oxygen is transported into the body functioning cells and tissues, so the body falls into fatigue and weak condition.

* Deposits of waste products and toxins: Extra waste products and toxins will build up in the body, once more than 50% of kidney function has been lost. These substances will damage various organs and systems, affecting patients’ overall health condition.

* Side effects of some medications: To keep IgA Nephropathy under control, patients often need to take steroids and immunosuppressants. However, they can cause various side effects, while weakness is just one common side effect.

According to the causes, patients should take effective treatments to manage the underlying cause. If you haven’t found useful treatment to get rid of weakness, you can consult the doctor online for suggestions in detail.
