Today, kicks off a new series of topics covering Iron, Anemia and CKD. If you have CKD, you probably have had, or maybe have right now, Iron deficiency otherwise known as Anemia. I was Anemic when first diagnosed, and all I did was sleep. Couldn’t help it, was just plain exhausted. The last couple weeks I have been more tired than usual, for no apparent reason. That makes me think I may need to boost my Iron intake. I have been following a 1200 calorie diet, and increasing exercise, during that same time period. So, I have to stop that. Losing weight is not more important than retaining kidney function. Below is a nice video talking about Anemia, and how it pertains to the kidneys, and CKD. Each Friday I will add to the topic, until I feel like I have covered as much as I can.
