Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Supplement Erythropoietin to Improve Anemia

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Supplement Erythropoietin to Improve Anemia Many Nephrotic Syndrome patients have anemia. And the severe your kidney disease, the worse your anemia. With anemia, you will have weakness, shortness of breath, headache, pale skin and some other clinical manifestation. Erythropoietin is also known as EPO, which can stimulate bone marrows to produce red blood cells. Can Nephrotic Syndrome patients supplement erythropoietin to improve anemia?

Nephrotic Syndrome and anemia

Nephrotic Syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder in which glomeruli become leaky so that protein which should be retained in body spills into urine. But as we all know, kidney is not only a blood purification organ, it is also responsible for secreting certain hormones, one of which is erythropoietin. When your kidney function impairs, your kidneys can not secrete enough EPO and then the amount of red blood cells reduces, leading to anemia. Besides, with the accumulation of waste products, the lifespan of red blood cells shortens, which further worsens anemia.

EPO can help you improve anemia to certain extent.

When you have anemia, you can supplement EPO to improve anemia. At the same time, you should take moderate iron tablets to make the curative effect better, because iron deficiency is also a common contributor to anemia.

Precautions should be taken when you use EPO.

If Nephrotic Syndrome patients have thrombosis, you should pay attention to EPO supplement, because it will make your blood more thickness so as to increase your risk of embolism and stroke.

How to improve anemia from the root for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

EPO can not help you improve anemia from the root. As long as you stop it, anemia comes back again. If you really want to have a good control of anemia, you should repair the damaged kidneys and restore their function to secrete erythropoietin. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and Medical Soup) can help you set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, anemia will be enhanced with the improvement of kidney function.
