Treatment and Care for Anemia of Chronic Kidney Disease

Anemia is the medical term for when a person has too few red blood cells, which means their body does not get all the oxygen it needs. Anemia of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a type of anemia that can happen in people who have a long-term disease or condition such as arthritis or cancer.

If your primary care physician feels you could have anemia of CKD or you have been diagnosed with the condition, you may have no symptoms, but some patients experience fatigue, weakness and headaches.

  • How We Can Help

    The Wichita Nephrology Group offers testing and treatment of patients with anemia associated with CKD.

    Your treatment and care will likely include:

    • Routine lab tests every two weeks.
    • Nurse-administered EPOGENĀ® injections that occur in the private setting of our practice rather than in an emergency room or hospital setting.

    What You Should Do

    If you do not already have an appointment with the Wichita Nephrology Group, your primary care physician will need to call and schedule your first appointment. Once you have an appointment in place, you may review the Your Visit page to find out what you can do to prepare for the visit and to determine what you should bring.
