Hemoglobin 8.1 and FSGS: Is It Serious

Hemoglobin 8.1 and FSGS: Is It SeriousHemoglobin is a protein in your red blood cells and carries oxygen to your body’s organs. For healthy adult men, their hemoglobin level is between 13.8 and 17.2 d/dL. For healthy adult female, their hemoglobin level ranges from 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL. Hemoglobin 8.1 is much lower than the normal range. Is it serious for FSGS patients?

What symptoms do you have with hemoglobin 8.1?

When your hemoglobin level is low, less oxygen is transported to your body’s organs. When your brain is lack of oxygen, you have headache and dizziness. When your muscles are lack of oxygen, you become tired easily and have shortness of breath. When your limbs are lack of oxygen and blood, you have cold hands and feet. You skin becomes pale due to blood deficiency. Besides, your kidneys will become ischemia and anoxia, which worsen your state of illness further.

How does FSSG lower your hemoglobin level?

FSGS scars your kidney tissues and affects their function to secrete erythropoietin. As a result, they can not stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. Besides, the accumulated waste products shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. When the number of healthy red blood cells drop, your hemoglobin level drops.

How to improve hemoglobin 8.1 for FSGS patients?

Generally speaking, when your hemoglobin level is low, your doctor prescribe EPO injection and iron supplement to help you improve this condition. Sometimes, you may have to do transfusion to relieve the body malaise. The fundamental treatment is to repair the damaged kidneys. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a kind of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can eliminate kidney inflammation, block blood clotting, expand blood vessels and degrade extracellular matrix so as to help kidneys recovery. When they regain their ability, symptoms associated with low hemoglobin disappear.

It is serious with hemoglobin 8.1 and FSGS. Therefore, you should take treatment as early as possible. For more information, please contact online doctor.
