Is There Any Relation Between Iron Deficiency and Kidney FunctionWith the impairment of kidney function, patients often suffer from iron deficiency. Is there any relation between iron deficiency and kidney function? The answer is certain.

What is the kidney function?

Kidney plays an important role in maintaining the health of body.

-Remove waste and excess water from the blood to form urine

-Balance chemicals in your body and ph.

-Activate vitamin D to promote the body's ability to absorb calcium, which keeps the bones strong and healthy.

Iron deficiency and kidney function

All of the tissues in our body need a near constant supply of oxygen to maintain life. Red blood cells are responsible for such a task. These have an iron-containing protein called hemoglobin, which is a perfect transporter for oxygen, in that it both picks up and releases oxygen in an exact an targeted way. When your kidney function declines, it can not secrete enough erythropoietin (EPO). EPO is a substance which stimulate the bone marrows to produce red blood cells. Besides, the accumulated waste in the blood also shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. When the amount of red blood cells reduce, you will suffer from iron deficiency.

From the above, we can see that iron deficiency and kidney function are closely related. If you suffer from iron deficiency, you can eat some iron supplements or food high in iron to improve this medical condition. Spinach, swiss chard, cumin, parsley, beet greens and so on are all good source of iron. But only improving kidney function can you avoid iron deficiency and some other problems. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy helps repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function by its properties of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, blood vessel dilation and extracellular matrix degradation.
