Kidney Disease, Fatigue Linked

A lot of people think that snoring is linked to too much fatigue. However, in a recent study presented at the 2013 World Congress of Nephrology, there was no significant correlation between fatigue and objective sleep measures, suggesting that sleep disorders and fatigue are different issues in the studied population. Instead, those who experienced fatigue are those patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

The researchers also found a significant correlation between increased fatigue and an reduced percentage of stage 2 sleep, increased wakefulness after sleep onset, and increased sleepiness. The study revealed no correlation between fatigue and other parameters of sleep such as a lower percentage of time spent in stage 3 or rapid eye movement sleep, and increased sleep apnoea (as measured by the Apnoea-Hypoapnoea Index and the Hypoxemic Index).
