Diabetic, Anemia and 8% Kidney Function: What Could Be the Treatment Option

Hi, the patient is diabetic. He has severely anemia with only 8% kidney function. What could be the treatment option here?

Hello, glad to help you solve kidney disease associated problems.

-Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney failure. Is the patient’s kidney failure associated with diabetes?

-Anemia is a common complication of kidney disease, because the damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells. It significantly increases the incidence of uremia and all-cause mortality in kidney patients, so it should be corrected timely if the patient does not want the life to be threatened. Conventional treatment for anemia is to inject EPO and take medicines such as iron supplement.

-Now his renal function is only 8%, he is in end stage renal disease (ESRD). Because diabetes can cause a series of severe complications, kidney failure caused by diabetes namely Diabetic Nephropathy usually starts dialysis earlier than other kidney disease.

Treatment option 1: Dialysis

Dialysis is the most commonly used treatment for kidney failure patients to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body so as to stabilize the illness condition and maintain life. But this is a life-long treatment. Would you like to do dialysis in the rest of your life? Long-term dialysis may cause a variety of complications, such as skin itching, headache, poor appetite and weakness to affect the living quality.

Treatment option 2: Kidney transplant

It can help get rid of dialysis. But it requires patients to have a donor. Because the transplanted kidney can only survive several years, so you should prepare for second kidney transplant or resuming dialysis.

Treatment option 3: Toxin-Removing Treatment

Since he still has some renal function, we should focus on protecting his residual renal function or even improve it. This treatment is a systemic treatment, which can eliminate waste products such as sugar, cholesterol, metabolic waste and extra fluid from body so as protect kidneys from being damaged by those excess substances. It can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and prevent the disease from getting worse. Moreover, it can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After about one month’s treatment, his kidney disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved gradually.

Now you know the treatment options for diabetics with anemia and 8% of renal function. But the above material is only for information. For specific treatment recommendations, please consult a physician.
