Fatigue and Kidney Cyst

Fatigue means constant stage of weakness in which it develops over time and diminishes patients’ energy and mental capacity. Fatigue does not equal being sleepy. However, we have to admit that fatigue makes patient desire to fall asleep. Fatigue is a medical condition which impacts your emotional and psychological well-being.

Fatigue is more likely to attack people with kidney cyst than ordinary people. Why?

Renal Anemia

Renal anemia is a condition in which anemia is caused by kidney problems. Kidney cysts means that there is at least 1 one cyst growing in the kidneys. Kidneys work to produce a substance named “hemopoietin”, which can stimulate the production of red blood cells. When cysts keep enlarging, they will have a damage on the kidneys, which will cause kidney function decline.

Failed kidneys will produce less hemopoietin and result in insufficient red blood cells, causing renal anemia. Anemia is a leading cause in fatigue.

High Creatinine Level

Creatinine is the waste products of muscular metabolism, which should be filtered out of the blood, when kidneys are healthy. When kidneys are damaged by the cysts, kidney cannot function well and the creatinine will build up in the blood.

High creatinine level will make the body full of toxins, causing the symptoms of fatigue, poor appetite and weakness etc.
