Low blood count is always seen in people with anemia. Is there any relationship between anemia and diabetes as well as Renal Failure? Yes, absolutely.
Symptoms of low blood count
In fact, low blood count means the red blood cells decrease, which means you have anemia. For renal failure patients with diabetes, they are likely to have anemia, resulting in less oxygen being carried to the body’s cells. People with anemia often feel tired or weak and may have difficulty getting through activities of daily living. Other symptoms include paleness, poor appetite, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Because these symptoms can also be associated with diabetes, they are sometimes not recognized as evidence of anemia.
Causes of anemia
Anemia may occur with diabetes because the hormone that regulates red blood cell production, erythropoietin (EPO), is produced by the kidneys. In the End Stage Renal Disease, the kidneys cannot produce enough EPO, so that the generation of red blood cells is affected. Then, anemia occurs and the blood test shows low blood count. In addition, diabetes is a high risk of renal failure, because it will aggravate the illness condition.
Treatment for anemia
1. EPO injection: Anemia can be treated with a genetically engineered form of EPO that is usually injected under the skin two or three times a week.
2. Iron supplementation: It is the most common treatment for anemia.
3. Adjusting your diet to include foods rich in iron, folic acid, and vitamin B12.
4. Improve kidney function: Since kidney disease is involved, treatment options should include improving your kidney function. This is always the key to deal with anemia. You can take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is based on traditional Chinese herbs, so they are natural. This therapy has been widely used in China and has helped many patients regain a normal life.
