A lot of diseases can lead to anemia. Is it also a symptom of DN (Diabetic Nephropathy)? Yes! When we say DN, we often talk about the changes of urine, swelling, high blood pressure and some other symptoms. Anemia is often ignored so that DN patients know little about it. I will give you more information in the following article.

What is anemia?

Anemia is a decrease in number of red blood cells or less than the normal quantity of hemoglobin in the blood.Does Anemia Possibly Occur for Diabetic Nephropathy Patients

Why anemia occurs with diabetic nephropathy?

Normally, when DN progresses into renal insufficiency, anemia easily occurs, with GFR (glomerular filtration rate) dropping to 45ml/min. The specific factors that may cause anemia are as follows:

1.Erythropoietin insufficiency

Kidney is the producer of erythropoietin. Due to DN, high sugar level, uncontrolled blood pressure and other factors can decrease kidney function. As a result, EPO (erythropoietin) becomes absent, failing to producing enough red blood cells. Therefore, anemia appears.

2. Azotemia

Azotemia is the other cause. DN patients are always with high creatine urea nitrogen level. The damaged kidney cannot eliminate the extra nitrogen, then azotemia is caused. In that case, many red blood cells are damaged or killed, which in return leads to anemia.

3. Other factors

Iron deficiency and iatrogenic factors, e.g. ACEI treatment, are also the causes of anemia.

What can I do to deal with anemia with DN?

Treatments are based on the causes of anemia.

Firstly, as for erythropoietin insufficiency, doctors may treat you with EPO medicines.

Secondly, try to keep creatine and nitrogen at normal level.

Finally, eat a planned diet to increase the supplement of iron,folic acid and vitamin B12.

However, the above methods can only relieve anemia. In order to treat it from the foot, keeping blood sugar level under control and repairing the damaged kidney tissues should be considered as the keys.
