Deficiency in red blood cells leads to anemia. In iron deficiency, the bone marrow produces fewer blood cells, and as the deficiency gets worse, the cells become smaller. Severe anemia can deprive organs of oxygen and cause organ failure. There are several causes of anemia:
Kidneys have important role in red blood cell production; they produce the hormone erythropoietin which is required for red blood cell synthesis in bone marrow. Diagnosing renal anemia is critical in establishing early and appropriate treatment in patients. There are many diagnostic tests available to help assess the nature of anemia, as well as to determine renal function.
