9. Headaches, fatigue and general weakness
Vitamin D is converted in our bodies by healthy and properly functioning kidneys to maintain strong bones and to create a hormone called Erythropoietin (EPO).
This hormone is required for the production of red blood cells.
When the kidneys aren’t working properly, they create less EPO.
The loss of red blood cells (which carry oxygen) causes the fast weariness of your muscles and brain.
Anemia is common in persons suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease.
When a person’s kidney function is between 20% and 50% of normal, anaemia may develop.
If you’re getting adequate rest and sleep but still suffering fatigue, low energy, and general weakness, You should see your doctor as soon as possible.
