Experiencing challenges with falling asleep, maintaining sleep at night, and staying alert during the day can all be potential indicators of CKD. Moreover, this condition may lead to more severe sleep disturbances. Dr. Pastan points out that ‘Kidney toxins affecting the brain can result in sleep disorders like sleep apnea, even in patients who are not overweight.’ Furthermore, anemia stemming from kidney disease can increase the likelihood of developing restless leg syndrome, a condition characterized by spasmodic leg movements that disrupt sleep. It’s essential to acknowledge that sleep problems can stem from various sources (hello, stress!), so it’s advisable to consult your healthcare provider for a comprehensive evaluation of your situation.
