Anemia Symptoms And Treatment for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients


Episode 49: Anemia Symptoms And Treatment for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients.
We will cover: Chronic Kidney Disease and Anemia, Anemia symptoms, anemia treatment, diet for anemia, symptoms of anemia, and anemia causes. Anemia is a condition where the body has fewer red blood cells than normal. Anemia symptoms for kidney disease patients: Anemia Symptoms include confusion and fatigue. Anemia Treatment for kidney disease: Can often be controlled with renal diet.

A deficiency of red blood cells causes low RBC (low rbc count) & low Hemoglobin in labs which is one of the symptoms of kidney problems. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body. With anemia, red blood cells carry less oxygen to the body — particularly the heart and brain, causing fatigue, weakness, confusion, and headaches.

Anemia Kidney Disease: Anemia commonly occurs in people with chronic kidney disease
(CKD), with the most common anemia symptoms being fatigue and problems concentrating. Anemia might begin to develop in the early stages of CKD (Stage 3). Anemia tends to worsen as CKD progresses. Most people at CKD Stage 5 have anemia and suffer from most anemia symptoms as part of their kidney disease symptoms. Healthy kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). EPO tells the bone marrow to make red blood cells, which then carry oxygen throughout the body.

In this video, I cover what is anemia, anemia symptoms, treatment for anemia, how anemia is related to CKD, the causes of anemia (including iron deficiency anemia), complications of anemia. With anemia treatments, I walk through iron supplements, erythropoietin injections, red blood cell transfusions, vitamin B12 and Folic Acid supplements, and renal diet options. With this information, you can work with your doctor to develop your treatment for anemia.
