What Should I Do For Low Hemoglobin In Kidney Disease
When the level of hemoglobin drops, it can cause weakness, fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath, dizziness, poor appetite and rapid heartbeat. It is a common complication in kidney disease. Well then, what to do for low hemoglobin level in renal disease?
First, we need to know why people with kidney disease get low hemoglobin.
Our kidneys make an important hormone called erythropoietin (EPO) which tells your body to make red blood cells. When you have kidney disease, your kidneys can not make enough EPO. Low EPO levels cause your red blood cell count to drop and anemia to develop. Hemoglobin is the part of red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body. If your hemoglobin is too low, it is likely you have anemia.
How to treat low hemoglobin in kidney disease?
1. Drugs called eryhropoiesis 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.
2. Extra iron
Your body also needs iron to make red blood cells-especially when you are receiving ESAs. Without enough iron, your ESA treatment will not work well.
We have a systematic Chinese Medicine Treatment including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Steaming Therapy, etc. They can repair kidney damage and improve renal function so as to relieve anemia from root. They first cleanse your blood through removing wastes and toxins from your body. This can give you a clean blood environment.

In this way, renal function can be improved and then low hemoglobin will be increased.
