Why Do Stage 4 CKD Patients Have Muscle Cramps

Why Do Stage 4 CKD Patients Have Muscle CrampsMuscle cramps are one common symptom in stage 4 chronic kidney disease that may affect patients’ life quality as well as sleep easily. Why do patients with Stage 4 CKD have muscle cramps like leg cramps? Detecting the answer can help patients accept correct treatment.

Generally, muscle health is related closely with electrolyte balance. In stage 4, more than 70% of kidney function is lost, so kidneys are unable to do their work normally. Then, electrolyte balance is disturbed and some disorders occur easily such as high phosphorus, low calcium and high potassium. All of these disorders can result in muscle cramps easily.

In addition to electrolyte imbalance, poor blood circulation is also one reason for muscle cramps. With the decline of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), less blood is filtered every minute. This can trigger muscle cramps easily.

Based on the causes, several methods can help deal with this problem. If you have Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease and this symptom, you can consult the doctor online directly.

1. Massage: This is natural remedy without any side effect, and it can help improve patients’ blood circulation and ease their muscle cramps.

2. Hot Compress Therapy: Put two hot bags filled with Chinese herbal medicines under lower back, so the effective ingredients of medicines can reach the kidney lesion directly. This can help improve kidney filtration function to some extent, so as to remove waste products and regulate electrolyte balance.

3. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: This therapy aims at treating Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease from the root and rebuilding kidney structure. Once kidneys can do their work normally, muscle cramps will disappear spontaneously.
