PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) and Dizzy SpellsPKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) refers to a condition in which a cluster of cysts form on bilateral kidneys. With the growth of cysts, this kidney disease will cause some symptoms. Dizzy spells is not rare in PKD. Let’s learn about it, so that you can choose right treatment.

How does Polycystic Kidney Disease cause dizzy spells?

Polycystic Kidney Disease does not cause dizzy spells directly. Enlarged kidney cysts can attack some other organs or systems, thus resulting in various disorders. These bad results may lead to dizzy spell. They can include:

♦ High blood pressure

♦ Nerve damage: Impaired kidneys due to PKD fail to filter excessive wastes and toxins. Therefore, harmful substances accumulate in the body, damaging nerves. That’s why PKD patients may experience headache or dizzy spells.

♦ Anemia: Damaged kidneys cannot produce enough EPO to form red blood cells, leading to anemia. As a result, not enough oxygen can be carried to the brain by red blood cells, and then dizzy spells occurs.

♦ Metabolic disorders: Hypoxia (low blood oxygen), low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and dehydration may all be the causes of dizzy spells.

♦ Psychiatric conditions: Besides this kidney disease itself, there are some subjective factors such as depression, anxiety, or panic disorder.
