Low Hemoglobin Level for IgA Nephropathy: Causes and Treatments

Low Hemoglobin Level for IgA Nephropathy: Causes and TreatmentsWith the progress of IgA Nephropathy, low hemoglobin (Hb) level is more likely to occur on patients’ blood test. The Hb levels can reveal the severity of renal anemia, and too low hemoglobin level can cause fatigue, dizziness and other problems easily. Today, this article is written to introduce the causes and treatments of low Hb levels on IgA Nephropathy.

Two conditions can lead hemoglobin levels to decline

The one is that kidneys fail to produce enough EPO, which is responsible for stimulating the body to make red blood cells. Lack of EPO leads to the decline of red blood cells, resulting in low hemoglobin level.

The other one is the deposits of waste products and toxins especially urea. These harmful substances will kill red blood cells and shorten their lifespan largely, so low hemoglobin level occurs easily.

How to increase hemoglobin level for IgA Nephropathy patients?

According to the causes, the following treatments are helpful to help manage this problem.

- Cleanse the internal environment: A clean internal environment can protect kidneys from further damage and prolong the lifespan of red blood cells. Blood Purification, Medicated Bath, Enema Therapy and oral medicines can help achieve this goal. Try to find out which therapy is helpful for you.

- Take oral iron supplement or inject EPO: These medicines and supplements can help increase the number of red blood cells in the body, and they are the most direct way to improve hemoglobin levels.

- Treat IgA Nephropathy from the root: IgA Nephropathy is one autoimmune disorder resulted from the deposits of IgA in glomerular mesangial areas. Only if these pathogenic factors are removed and kidney function is improved, can low hemoglobin level and renal anemia be managed fundamentally. Immunotherapy is just one therapy that focuses on treating autoimmune disease as well as IgA Nephropathy. (To learn more about this therapy, you can leave a message below or send email to
