    Anemia and Chronic Kidney Disease

    What Is Anemia?

    Anemia means a medical condition in which your red blood cells are less than normal range. Red blood cells work to transmit the oxygen to your different organs, which is necessary to keep your body organs run normally.

    How Are Anemia and Chronic Kidney Disease Related?

    People with CKD are more likely to develop anemia, because kidneys can produce a hormone named “erythropoietin” (EPO is its short name). EPO works to help your body to produce red blood cells. For people with CKD, the damaged kidneys fail to make enough EPO, which causes decreased number of red blood cells. This is how Renal Anemia happens.
