Causes And Management Of Anemia In Stage 3 Kidney Failure

2014-04-09 01:32

Causes And Management Of Anemia In Stage 3 Kidney FailureKidney failure or renal failure means that kidneys are not working properly. Renal failure is divided into 5 stages and stage 3 kidney failure indicates moderately reduced kidney function. If the renal failure is chronic, it is lasting and kidney function is unlikely to improve. As your kidney function deteriorates, you might develop any of the following symptoms: fluid retention, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, itch, cramps and anemia. And anemia is one of the most common symptoms in stage 3 kidney failure. Well then, what is the causes and management of anemia in stage 3 kidney failure?

1. The cause of anemia of kidney failure stage 3

The anemia that goes with renal failure is mainly due to a deficiency of a hormone called erythropoietin(EPO) which is produced by the kidney to stimulate red blood cells production from the bone marrow. An insufficiency of EPO will lead to anemia.

2. Management for anemia of stage 3 kidney failure

Take iron

Anemia in renal failure can be helped by taking iron. However, sometimes even if you take iron, you still remain short of iron. If so, you need to take a course of intravenous iron injections.

Take EPO injection

If you have severe anaemia, you doctor may prescribe EPO, which has to be given as injection once or twice a week.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Compared with the above two methods to alleviate anemia, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can treat anemia fundamentally, which aims to improve kidney function. As long as kidney function is elevated to some extent, its ability to stimulate red blood cells production can also be improved. In this way, anemia is able to be relieved more better than iron and EPO injection.

Though anemia is just a symptom of stage 3 kidney failure, it is more likely to aggravate kidney failure if left untreated. Thereby, it is necessary for you to take timely remedy to ease anemia.
