Forty-year-old man has renal anemia

A forty-year-old man felt tired, weakness in his limbs, and shortness of breath when walking.  He went for a checkup and doctors found that his hemoglobin whole blood count was 4 g/dL.  The normal count for a physically strong adult is about 14 g/dL.

Doctors say he was in the fifth stage of chronic kidney disease and that his anemia was renal anemia.

In the third stage of chronic kidney disease, 10% will become anemic.  In the fourth stage, 60% will become anemic.  In the fifth stage, over 90% will suffer renal anemia.
