The body needs iron to make hemoglobin so the red blood cells in the blood can carry oxygen to tissues and organs.

Low iron is a factor in the anemia of chronic kidney disease. You may need to take an erythropoetin stimulating agent (ESA) therapy if your body is not producing enough natural erythropoietin (EPO). Your healthcare provider will look at the whole picture and work with you to develop the best approach to optimal care.
