Why Do Kidney Patients Have Pale Color

Why Do Kidney Patients Have Pale ColorWhy do kidney patients look pale? Pale color is from anemia. When you have kidney disease, your kidneys can not make enough EPO. Low EPO levels cause your red blood cell count to drop and anemia to develop. With anemia, you look very pale.

Why do kidney disease patients get anemia?

Your kidneys make an important hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). Hormone travels to tissues and organs to help you stay healthy. EPO tells your body to make red blood cells. When you have kidney disease, your kidneys can not make enough EPO. In this condition, anemia occurs. And anemia can make you look pale, feel tired,have little energy for your daily activities, feel dizzy or have headache, have shortness of breath and feel depressed.

Of course, hypertension and side effects of medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, corticosteroids and napronxen can also make you look pale.

How to treat anemia in kidney patients?

1. Diet

Diet is the common remedy for anemia. Foods rich in iron include seafood, beans, dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, dried fruits, peas, red meat, pork and poultry. Of course, do not consume some foods too much. Consuming large amounts of some foods and drinks may make it harder for your body to absorb iron. These foods are tea, coffee, wholegrain cereals, calcium found in dairy products such as milk.

2. Natural Chinese medicines

If your renal function can be improved, your kidneys can make more erythropoietin to produce enough red blood cells. Thus, anemia will be relieved from the root. How to improve renal function?
