Anemia and Headache in Kidney Failure

2014-04-02 10:59

Anemia and headache are two common complaints in kidney failure. What are the causes of these two conditions? How to manage them?

Anemia in kidney failure

Anemia is a disorder, where the hemoglobin level is lower than normal. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to body tissues and cells. In Kidney Failure, the diseased kidneys fail to produce adequate EPO, a hormone that regulates red blood cell production. Less EPO in body will lead to less number of red blood cells. If the body does not get right amount of oxygen, it will lead to anemia.

People who have both kidney failure and anemia are at risk of death, stroke, or heart failure. How to manage anemia in kidney failure? Email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com.

Headache in kidney failure

Anemia is one of possible causes of headache in kidney failure. This is because the brain tissues and cells may not get enough oxygen.

In addition, a variety of conditions also can contribute to headache in kidney failure. High blood pressure is commonly seen in kidney failure due to fluid retention and renal ischemia and anoxia. High blood pressure is also a significant accelerator in worsening renal function.

If the patients are on Dialysis, dialysis disequilibrium syndrome may occur. This disorder is also an attributor of headache in kidney failure.
