Should Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients Take Exercise

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients frequently consult us such a question that if they can take exercise once they are diagnosed with kidney disease. Actually kidney patients take exercise but they follow some rules:

Should Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients Take Exercise1. Do not take strenuous exercise

Kidney disease can cause fatigue, back pain, weakness and poor appetite, etc. If you take strenuous exercise, it will worsen kidney’s renal ischemia and anoxia state and make your kidney condition become worse. Therefore, CKD patients should avoid taking strenuous exercise such as jogging, play balls and sprint while they can choose walking and taichi.

2. Do not take exercise when your condition is not stable.

When you suffer from kidney disease, you should have a good rest. When your condition gets stable, you can take proper exercise. If you lie on bed for a long time and take less activity, it can make your body organ function decline and weaken your immunity. Therefore, proper exercise is good.

Exercise can improve your kidneys’ reabsorption function. When you take exercise, you will produce more sweats and fluid in your body will lose. To keep balance of fluid and salt, your kidneys will reabsorb more fluid and salt.

In which cases CKD patients should not take exercise?

1. Middle/end stage of chronic kidney failure associated with severe complications.

2. Gross hematuria or decreased urine less than 400mg/d

3. Middle/severe high blood pressure associated with headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting

4. Acute nephritis accompanied by azotemia

5. Moderate and severe edema

6. Heart failure or pulmonary inflammation causes shortness of breath, cough and chest tightness palpitate.

If you have the above conditions, you should first have a good rest and not take exercise. If condition gets alleviated, you can take exercise moderately but should get the doctor’s guidance.

Moderate exercise is good for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients. Of course, you also need to take Chinese medicine treatments such as Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Medicinal Soup, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They can repair kidney damage and improve renal function so that you can have a high quality life. Also it is possible for patients to get rid of dialysis or at least reduce dialysis times.
