IgA Nephropathy occurs when immunoglobulin A deposits in your kidneys and causes inflammation. This kind of kidney disease causes many symptoms, such as high blood pressure, blood urine, edema and so on. Does IgA Nephropathy cause low hemoglobin?
What causes low hemoglobin for IgA Nephropathy patients?
Hemoglobin is a protein in the red blood cells that carries oxygen. When hemoglobin level declines, it results in anemia. With anemia, you may feel tired, dizzy, short of breath, etc. For IgA Nephropathy patients, anemia is very common. Because the impaired kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin, which stimulates the bone marrows to generate red blood cells. Besides, the accumulated wastes and toxins also affect the lifespan of red blood cells. With the decrease of red blood cells, hemoglobin level lowers.
Treatment for low hemoglobin
The conventional treatments for low hemoglobin are taking iron supplements and EPO. You can also eat some food that high in iron, such as tofu, bean and dark leafy greens, but avoid too much. Though they can improve anemia, they can not treat your IgA Nephropathy.
