Anemia is common in people with kidney disease.Healthy kidneys can produce a hormone called erythropoetin,or EPO,which stimulates the none marrow to produce red blood cells.The red blood cells are responsible for distributing oxygen to vital organs. Inadequate oxygen supply to body cells and tissues may cause weakness. (How to manage anemia on dialysis)
