3 Kidney Failure
Kidney failure is a serious cause of restless leg syndrome. The major function of the kidneys is the detoxification of the body and maintaining acid-base balance of the blood. When kidney failure occurs, many harmful chemicals are not excreted from the body and are accumulated in the blood and other organs. This leads to the emergence of RLS in the patients of kidney disease.
There are many causes of kidney failure, diabetes and hypertension being at the top. If you have a kidney condition and start experiencing a restless leg, it is an indication that you need to see your doctor immediately.
