Are Heavy Legs a Sign of Kidney Failure

Are Heavy Legs a Sign of Kidney FailureMany Kidney Failure patients don’t want to have any walk or exercise, because they are suffering from heavy legs. Are heavy legs a sign of Kidney Failure? Is there any link between these two problems?

The answer is yes. Renal Failure is one condition in which many symptoms and complications occur because of complete failed kidneys. Heavy legs can affect patients’ life quality largely, and it has a closed link with kidney failure.

Generally speaking, several conditions can cause heavy legs.

The first cause is leg swelling. When kidneys fail to maintain fluid and sodium balance and keep protein in the body, more and more fluid will flow from blood vessels to tissues. Legs are just common areas involved in water retention.

The other reason is fatigue and renal anemia. Because one big kidney function is to secrete EPO that can stimulate the body to produce red blood cells, diseased kidneys are unable to make EPO. Finally, renal anemia and fatigue occur. Without enough energy, patients can feel their legs heavy.

According to causes, we give out the following treatments to deal with your heavy legs.

1. Take treatments to drain extra fluid: Limit the fluid intake, use some medicines like diuretic, dialysis, etc, all can help ease swelling. If you want to take some natural remedies, you can try herbal medicine or herbal tea, because they have less side effects. (Ask the doctor online to determine which herbs are suitable for you.)

2. Control renal anemia actively: Since renal anemia is due to lack of EPO and deposits of toxins, we should try to cleanse blood, inject EPO and supply iron-containing foods. Choose correct methods to control patients’ renal anemia. With more energy, Kidney Failure patients can ease their heavy legs effectively.

In addition to the above methods, some treatments that can help repair damaged kidney cells and improve kidney function are also needed. As long as kidneys can do their work relatively normally, patients can find their heavy legs disappear.
