Sleep disorder is a lasting torment for some patients with Uremia. It can disorder the normal physiological and metabolic activities. Also it can affect their life quality and make them feel tired all day long. Why patients with Uremia suffer from sleep disorder? Is there any way to relieve it?
In Uremia, the metabolic products can not be excreted from blood normally
thus accumulating in body. These metabolic products can do harm to multiple
organs and tissues. The causes related to sleep disorder in Uremia are as
△ The metabolic toxins, especially the moderate molecular substances, can
impair thee respiratory center and never system. The routine dialysis can only
clear up the micromolecule toxins like creatinine, urea nitrogen etc, but a lot
of moderate molecular toxins will remain in the blood.
△ Most of the patients with Uremia have metabolic acidosis, especially
metabolic acidosis. It can cause apnea and snoring which can affect the sleep
△ Uremic toxins can cause declined pharyngeal muscular tension and
neuromuscular coordination function disorder. As a result, the patients with
Uremia often have blockage of the upper airway and snoring and apnea when
From the above article, it can be seen that the accumulation of metabolic
products in body is the underlying cause of sleep disorder in Uremia. To
eliminate the sleep problem, the patients should discharge the metabolic wastes
Generally speaking, dialysis can relieve the problem to some extent. However,
it can not take over the native kidneys completely. Therefore, dialysis can not
treat the patients’ sleep disorder fundamentally or improve renal function at
Therefore, what the patients with Uremia should do is to take relevant
treatment to recover the normal function of the native kidneys. Once the renal
function is reversed, they will be able to excrete the metabolic products
normally as before. Afterwards, the sleep disorder will also disappear.
