Appropriate Treatment for Anemia in Chronic Nephritis

Appropriate Treatment for Anemia in Chronic NephritisAnemia makes many Chronic Nephritis patients fatigue and feel tired all the time. Most often, anemia is accompanied by many other symptoms such as swelling, proteinuria and high blood pressure, and anemia may be a sign of aggravated kidney condition. In this case, an appropriate treatment of anemia for Chronic Nephritis is needed urgently.

Anemia refers to the condition that our blood lacks enough hemoglobin or healthy red blood cells. Then, cells and tissues all over the body can’t get enough oxygen. For Chronic Nephritis patients, their anemia may be attributed to four conditions.

- Iron deficiency

- Vitamin deficiency such as folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin B-12

- Decreased red blood cell production, because of kidney insufficiency

- Blood loss like hematuria

There is no specific treatment for all types of anemia. In turn, doctors focus on managing anemia through treating the underlying cause. If Nephritis patients’ anemia is mild, food therapy along with some drugs or supplements are enough to deal with their anemia. For example:

The first step is to increase iron, folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin B-12 in the diet. A lot of foods in our daily life are rich in these nutritions. Ask the dietitian to get such a food list.

The second step is to take some drugs and supplements. If patients’ digestive system has trouble absorbing these nutritions from the food patients eat, they may need to receive corresponding drugs or supplements like iron supplement.

The third step is to manage blood loss. Bleeding tendency is another cause of anemia for Chronic Nephritis patients. If the patient has this problem, have more rest and manage them timely.

The above treatments are not enough, once patients have severe anemia. In this light, injections of synthetic erythropoietin or even blood transfusion may even been taken to boost levels of red blood cells and hemoglobin. Besides, some systemic treatments that can help repair damaged kidneys are also needed. Try to determine which one is good for you.
