Could Dialysis Treatment Cause A Person’s Hemoglobin to DropDialysis patients often have low hemoglobin level. Could dialysis treatment cause a person's hemoglobin to drop? After reading this article, you will find out the answer.

Low hemoglobin level is usually related with kidney damage.

Kidney does not only filter waste products and excess fluid out of body, but also has secretion function. Erythropoietin is one of the hormone that kidney secretes, and it is an important component of hemoglobin. When your kidneys are severely damaged, the production of erythropoietin will be influenced. As a result, your hemoglobin level will become low. Generally speaking, the degree of anemia is in direct proportion to kidney damage.

Other factors that cause low hemoglobin

1. Regular blood test and bleeding can make your anemia worse. Besides, some blood may remain in the dialyzer, which can worsen your anemia as well.

2. The accumulated waste products in blood can shorten the lifespan of red blood cells, while the new red blood cells can not be produced timely. Therefore, it adds insult to injury.

3. Insufficient elements for making hemoglobin. Iron, vitamin B12, folic acid and so on are the essential elements for making hemoglobin. Due to diet restriction, you may lack those elements.

4. Other factors, such as hyperparathyroidism. It can inhibit the production of red blood cells, increase the brittleness of red blood cells and shorten the lifespan of red blood cells.

If you have low hemoglobin level, you should take the above factors into consideration and then take corresponding measures to relieve this symptom.

Could dialysis treatment cause a person’s hemoglobin to drop? Yes, but the fundamental cause is the damaged kidney. Therefore, if you want to improve your hemoglobin level, you should repair kidney damage and promote kidney function.
