How to Have Good Hemoglobin Quality in ESRD PatientsWhen your kidney disease develops to end stage renal failure (ESRD), many problems occur, one of which may be low hemoglobin level. Hemoglobin is complex protein found in red blood cells that contains an iron molecule. How to have good hemoglobin quality in ESRD patients?

Why ESRD patients have low hemoglobin level?

Besides excretion function, kidneys also have endocrine function. One of the hormones it produces is erythropoietin, which stimulates the bone marrows to produce red blood cells. When you are in ESRD, the kidneys are malfunctioning so that erythropoietin production decreases. And then red blood cells count decreases, as does hemoglobin. Besides, the waste and toxins in the blood also decreases the amount of red blood cells. Besides, iron deficiencies affect hemoglobin production.


Low hemoglobin level may make you feel shortness of breath, fatigue, cold limbs, headache, etc. Therefore, you should receive treatment as early as possible.

Treatment to help you improve hemoglobin quality

The direct way to improve hemoglobin level is to supplement erythropoietin and iron. But that is not enough. It is necessary for you to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.

First, you should find out the root cause of ESRD, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or some other factors. And then suit the remedy to the case.

Second, you should set about cleansing the blood. Therapies such as circle therapy, enema therapy, steam therapy and medicated bath can draw out toxins from the blood. They can also dilate blood vessels, remove stasis and speed up blood circulation to improve blood circulation in your body. Moreover, they supplement essential nutrients such as amino acids and trace elements to help kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys can regain their ability. And then they can improve blood quality.
