Conversación sobre la anemia: qué es la anemia de la enfermedad renal crónica
Los riñones sanos filtran los desechos y eliminan el líquido extra del organismo, pero esa no es su única función. Cuando tiene enfermedad renal y los riñones no funcionan como es debido, a veces no pueden ayudar al organismo a producir glóbulos rojos. La anemia se presenta cuando no hay suficientes glóbulos rojos sanos en el organismo. Es una complicación frecuente de la enfermedad renal, sobre todo en las personas que reciben diálisis. Puede provocar gran debilidad o cansancio, y empeora a medida que lo hace la enfermedad renal. Afortunadamente, hay cosas que se pueden hacer para controlar la anemia y que podrían ayudar a estar mejor.

En este webinario, la Dra. Leticia Rolón, una nefróloga, hablará sobre la anemia de la enfermedad renal crónica (ERC), por qué aparece y cómo controlarla en el día a día.

Healthy kidneys filter waste and extra fluid from your body, but that is not their only job. When you have kidney disease and your kidneys do not work as well as they should, your kidneys may not be able to help your body make red blood cells. Anemia happens when there are not enough healthy red blood cells in your body. Anemia is a common complication of kidney disease, especially for people on dialysis. It can make you feel extra weak or tired, and it gets worse as your kidney disease gets worse. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to manage your anemia that may help you feel better.

In this webinar, Dr. Leticia Rolón, a nephrologist, will discuss anemia of CKD, why it happens and how to manage it in your daily life. Join this webinar to get your questions answered about:
• Anemia signs and symptoms
• How kidney disease can cause anemia
• How to manage anemia of CKD
