Why Do People With Kidney Disease Get AnemiaSome people will ask that why kidney disease patients will have anemia. When people suffer from anemia, they will have fatigue, tiredness, dizziness and headache. Well, what is the cause of anemia in kidney failure patients?

1. Cause of anemia in kidney disease

Actually blood is produced by bone marrow. Kidneys produce erythropoietin which makes bone marrow generate blood. According to present researches, mesenchymal cells surrounding glomerular secrete a large amount of erythropoietin. Erythropoietin send signal to bone marrow to make blood so when kidneys are damaged, insufficient erythropoietin is secreted. Anemia occurs naturally.

To repair kidney damage, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended. In this therapy, the active medicines can come to kidney lesion directly with the help of osmosis device. Patients just need to lie on the bed to take this therapy. Patients describe this therapy like a massage. The medicines play roles of expanding blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients for damaged kidneys. Gradually damaged kidneys can be repaired to a certain degree. Thus, anemia can be alleviated naturally.

Besides, your doctor may also treat you with:

Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents (ESAs)

ESAs help your body make red blood cells. Your doctor will give the ESA to you as an injection under the skin.
