Not a few hemodialysis patients have anemia or even pernicious anemia. Without good control, it may threaten your life. Does hemodialysis affect hemoglobin? Go on reading to learn more information.
On one hand, when you are on dialysis, your kidneys have been severely damaged so that your kidneys can not work well to stimulate bone marrows to make hemoglobin. On the other hand, during hemodialysis, a small part of blood may be lost due to blood clotting, rupture of membrane, which affects your hemoglobin level as well. Besides, repeated blood test and diet restrictions have some influence too.
How to deal with the low hemoglobin for hemodialysis patients?
The most direct and effective treatment is to do blood transfusion. You should also keep on the intake of EPO. Besides, you can try intravenuous drip infusion of iron sucrose.
The fundamental way is to restore your kidney function to make hemoglobin. Dialysis is just a kidney replacement. It can not do this for you. Here you can try some Chinese medicine therapies, such as Moxibustion, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicated Full Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Circle Therapy, Navel Therapy, etc. They can expel waste products and toxins out of renal cells and blood to make a clean internal environment for the damaged kidneys to heal themselves. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation to and increase blood flow into kidneys so that more oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into damaged kidneys to heal themselves. After about one month’s treatment, your hemoglobin level will increase. And you will feel energetic. After about months’ treatment, you can reduce dialysis frequency or even get off dialysis.
