Why Am I Always Lack of Energy with Nephrotic Syndrome

Why Am I Always Lack of Energy with Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is a collection of proteinuria, swelling, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. It reflects that there goes something wrong with your kidneys. As we all know, kidney is a very important organ. When they fail to work, they can not maintain your life normally so that you will have a lot of body malaise. Why am I always lack of energy with Nephrotic Syndrome? After reading this article, you will find the answer.


Anemia often goes together with kidney disease. Because the damaged kidneys can not make enough erythropoietin to produce red blood cells. And the accumulated waste products in the blood shortens the lifespan of red blood cells. When there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to the muscles, you will feel lack of energy.

Improper diet intake

Nephrotic Syndrome patients are often required to follow a restricted diet. But it does not mean you should avoid certain food intake. If you can not supplement enough calory, protein, sodium or some other trace elements, it is likely for you to suffer from fatigue. In fact, you should talk with a dietitian to make a renal-friendly diet.

Physical inactivity

Because of massive protein leakage and severe swelling, Nephrotic Syndrome patients had better stay in bed to have a good rest. But when Nephrotic Syndrome is under controlled, you should do some exercise, which can boost your energy. If you always stay in bed, you will feel more tired.

Side effects of medications

Steroids and immunosuppressants may be helpful for you to control Nephrotic Syndrome, but they can cause many side effects, one of which is to make your muscles weak.

Why am I always lack of energy with Nephrotic Syndrome? There may be some other factors that can contribute to your fatigue, such as poor sleeping quality. In China, we widely use 4M treatment into Nephrotic Syndrome treatment. This set of treatment can set up a good blood environment for the damaged kidneys to repair themselves. With the improvement of kidney function, you will feel energetic. If you would like to know more information about 4M treatment, please leave a message below or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
