A patient consults our online doctor a question that if patients can still continue dialysis when hemoglobin level is low. Low hemoglobin level is a common complication in kidney disease. Dialysis is a life-saving treatment. Without dialysis, patients’ lives may be threatened. Thus, patients still need to take dialysis when hemoglobin level is low.
What causes low hemoglobin?
When kidneys are damaged, they do not make enough EPO. As a result, the bone marrow makes fewer red blood cells, causing anemia. When blood has fewer red blood cells, it deprives the body of the oxygen it needs. One sign of anemia is low hemoglobin in your medical report.
What is the treatment for low hemoglobin in dialysis patients?
The root cause of low hemoglobin is injured kidneys. Thus, its treatment should repair impaired kidney tissues and improve renal function. Only in this way can low hemoglobin be increased fundamentally.
In order to improve kidney function, our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, China create a systematic Chinese Medicine Therapy called Toxin-Removing Treatment including a series of therapies like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and Medicinal Soup, etc. According to your specific condition, our doctor will choose proper treatment for you. They first cleanse your blood to give you a clean blood environment for recovering your renal function. Without a clean blood environment, you can not get a good therapeutic effect. This is because toxins in your body will counteract the effect of medication you take and also cause further kidney damage. Thus, the first step in kidney disease treatment should purify your blood. Our Chinese medicines can remove toxins and wastes from your kidneys and kidney intrinsic cells effectively. When this step is completed, they can work better to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function gradually. When kidney function is improved, it is able to increase your hemoglobin level radically. Moreover, it is able to reduce dialysis times or even help you avoid dialysis.
Patients should not stop dialysis immediately. Our Chinese medicine treatments can help them reduce dialysis gradually and increase hemoglobin level from the root.
