2017-05-24 08:46

Foods Are For Kidney Patients With AnemiaRenal anemia occurs in kidney patients. It is due to damaged kidney function which causes erythropoietin (EPO) insufficiency. It is the most common complication in kidney disease. Renal anemia is often accommpanied with fatigue, weakness and pale appearance.

According to datas, the morbidity rate of anemia in kidney patients is 40-60% and it is 70%-90% in dialysis patients. It is 75% in patients who prepare to take dialysis.

Hemoglobin is the indicator of measuring anemia.

The normal range is 130-80g/L in male and 120-160g/L in female.

Slight anemia is 90-120g/L in male and 90-110g/L in female.

Mild anemia is 60-90g/L in male and female.

Severe anemia is below 60g/L in both male and female.

What are foods for anemia in kidney patients?

Heme iron is in animal-based foods which are easy to be absorbed by your body. It can absorb 20% iron while non-heme iron is in plant-basd foods. They have low absorbed rate to iron because it is disturbed by phytic acid, oxalic acid and tannic acid. The rate to absorb iron is only 1% to 5%. Therefore, kidney patients can choose some animal foods such as lean meat, pig blood and duck blood. And some plant-based foods with rich iron are also helpful for anemia like red dates, dried apricot slices, longan and walnuts.

Besides, anemia patients can eat some acidic fruits to promote the absorption of iron. Acidic fruits contain more vitamin C. Vitamin C can promote 2-3 times of the absorption rate to iron. Foods with rich vitamin C include kiwi fruit, apple, lettuce and tomato. If you are not with high potassium level, you can eat more acidic fruits to supplement iron.

Apart from proper foods to relieve anemia, the key for kidney patients is to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. Only in this way can renal anemia be treated from the root. Here we recommend Chinese medicine treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup and Moxibustion Therapy, etc. They not only purify your blood but also enhance renal function.
