Anemia and Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

Anemia and Stage 3 Chronic Kidney DiseasePatients with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease may have fatigue and weak feeling. This may be associated with renal anemia (shortage of red blood cells). Well management of anemia can make kidney patients get more energy.


The root cause is low kidney function. In addition to purifying blood, producing erythropoietin is another important kidney function. This substance can stimulate the body to make enough red blood cells that can provide enough oxygen for functioning tissues.

Besides, when chronic kidney disease aggravates into stage 3, patients usually need to control their protein intake. Restricted protein intake causes less intake of iron, calcium, zinc, and other minerals. Iron is one essential raw material for red blood cells, so iron deficiency is another cause of renal anemia.


According to the causes, treatments should start from the following aspects.

1. Supplement enough iron: The iron in food has two sources: animals and plants. Iron in animal source is called heme iron, and it in plant source is called nonheme iron. Rich-iron foods include beef, eggs, tuna, shrimp, leg of lamb, instant oatmeal, beans, tofu, lentils, peanut butter, while wheat bread, and so on. Consult the Doctor online to choose correct foods to eat.

In severe cases, patients may even need to take some medications to supplement iron immediately such as folic acid, vitamin B12, and so on.

2. Take EPO therapy: As kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, the body should supplement EPO from other ways. This can prompt the body to produce red blood cells relatively normally.

3. Improve kidney function: This is the fundamental treatment to treat Stage 3 CKD patients’ anemia. Micro-Chinese Medicine Hot Compress Therapy is one therapy that can boost kidney function through stimulating Shenshu acupoint and nourishing damaged kidneys. Hopefully, this therapy can also help you get rid of kidney-related complications.
