Fatigue and anemia in PKD

Anemia can commonly occur in PKD. That is the major of fatigue in PKD. Healthy kidneys can produce EPO which is a hormone which can stimulate the production of red blood cells. However in PKD, the enlarged cysts will replace more and more nephrons, thus leading to renal function decline. The diseased kidneys can not produce enough EPO, thus leading to decreased number of red blood cells.
Fatigue and anemia can affect the patients’ life significantly. It is an important reason for the patients giving up their job.
