Details: My father is suffering from diabetes and also low haemoglobin level which is 5.4. What is the reason?
Diabetes is one common metabolic disorder which can induce a lot of complications. Low haemoglobin 5.4 indicates the onset of renal anemia. Diabetes can shorten the lifespan of red blood cells, so itself is one cause of low haemoglobin level.
Besides, if your father has suffered from diabetes for long term, his kidneys may be damaged by this metabolic disorder. One important kidney function is to secrete EPO, which can stimulate the body to make red blood cells. When kidneys are damaged, they are unable to produce enough EPO, so renal anemia occurs easily. What’s worse, the buildup of waste products and toxins can also shorten the lifespan of red blood cells.
According to the causes, we would like to recommend the following treatments that can help deal with haemoglobin from the root.
- Good control of diabetes: Developing a sugar-free diet plan and taking antidiabetic medicines.
- Protect kidney functioning tissues: Micro-Chinese Medicine Hot Compress Therapy is one effective treatment that can help rebuild kidney filtering structure and improve patients’ kidney function level.
- Inject EPO or take iron supplement: This can prompt the formation of red blood cells.
