Why hemoglobin decreases for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

Anemia is common in people with renal insufficiency. Healthy kidneys can make a hormone, called erythropoietin. This hormone helps the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body. But once the kidneys are damaged, they can not make enough EPO and then hemoglobin level decreases. The hemoglobin level gets worse as kidney disease progresses.

Low hemoglobin level can make you feel weak, tired, and short of breath, so you had better increase hemoglobin levels as early as possible.

The most common treatment for people with low hemoglobin level is Erythropoiesis Stimulating Agents (ESAs) and iron supplement. Sometimes, supplement of vitamin B12 and folic acid may be needed. But these medications may also increase risk of heart failure, blood clots, stroke, tumor growth, etc.
