Low blood pressure is a common reason of fatigue after dialysis. Dialysis is usually performed 3 to 4 times in a week. Between sessions of dialysis, high level of fluid will build up in body. During the dialysis treatment, fluid is removed in such a short time. This is not normal for the body. The more fluid that has to be removed, the greater the chance of a person feeling tired and sick after dialysis. The body just cannot take having all that fluid removed in such as short period of time. Therefore, it is very important for people on dialysis to limit fluids intake and foods high in water.
Low dry weight is an important value in measuring the quality of dialysis. However, if the weight falls below dry weight after dialysis, the patient may experience fatigue and other discomforts.
High blood pressure medicines are usually prescribed to people with renal failure. Usually, the blood pressure falls during the dialysis treatment. Therefore, the patients are told not to take medicines before dialysis. This is because as the medicine starts working and lowering the blood pressure an the machine is removing fluid and lowering blood pressure, the blood pressure may go too low, thus resulting in fatigue.
The above are the major causes of fatigue after dialysis. Although it can be eliminated completely, certain measures can relieve it effectively.
