How does anemia occur in PKD patients?
Kidneys are two-bean shaped organs in our body, in normal condition, they can help produce enough EPO. However, in PKD, the enlarged cysts will put extra strain on the surrounding renal tissues and interfere with kidney function. Then, there will be less oxygen and red blood cells. As a consequence, anemia come into being eventually.
Treatment options for anemia in people with PKD
1. Shrink cysts and improve kidney function
To remit anemia from the underlying cause, the most important step should be aimed at shrinking cysts and promoting kidney function. Here, a natural remedy named Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is highly recommended, and clinical practices have proven it’s efficacy. Once the treatment goal is attained, can anemia be alleviated. Additionally, it is not a “one size fits all” therapy and each herbal formula is prescribed on the specific condition.
2. Injection of EPO and drugs
In some cases, doctors may prescribe patients with some drugs to treat this condition. However, long-term usage of these medicines may lead to some side effects. Besides, injection of EPO can also be recommended.
3. Stick to a healthy eating plan
Except for treatments and drugs, a healthy eating plan is vital as well. Patients can eat foods loaded with iron, vitamin B 12 and folic acid and so on. To decrease the workload of kidneys, patients should stay away from salted foods, high-protein foods, spicy foods, alcohol and tobacco products as much as possible.
