Causes of Anemia in Hemodialysis Patients
A number of hemodialysis patients suffer from anemia, or even pernicious anemia. Do you know the causes? To know the answer can help you alleviate this problem easily.

-Kidney damage

Kidney secretes 95% of erythropoietin, which can stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. Due to kidney failure, the secretion will decrease, leading to anemia. In general, the degree of anemia is in direct proportion to the severity of kidney failure. Almost all kidney patients have anemia more or less.

-Too much loss of red blood cells

Blood test, residual blood in dialyzer and bleeding can all worsen anemia.

-The destruction of red blood cells by the toxins

The life expectancy of normal red blood cells is about 120 days, but red blood cells in uremia can only survive 60-90 days. That is because the accumulated waste products in body can cause damage to those cells and shorten their lifespan.

-Insufficient raw materials to make red blood cells

To produce healthy red blood cells, raw materials supply are necessary, such as iron, vitamin B12, folic acid tablets, protein, amino acids, vitamin C, etc. But not a few renal patients can not supply those essential elements timely.

-Hyperparathyroidism

It is a common complication of kidney failure. Parathyroid gland can inhibit the production of red blood cells, increase the brittleness of red blood cells and shorten the lifespan of red blood cells.

The above are the common causes of anemia in dialysis. To alleviate it, it is required to supply EPO, iron, folic acid, vitamin B12, transfuse blood, etc. But these are only stopgap measures. The fundamental way is to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, systemic Chinese medicine treatment such as Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. After about half month’s treatment, your anemia will get improved greatly. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney function will start to increase. With the improvement of kidney function, you can reduce or even get rid of dialysis.
