Anemia and Kidney Disease.

What is anemia?

Anemia is a condition in which your blood has a lower-than-normal amount of red blood cells or hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the iron rich protein that allows red blood cells to carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. With fewer red blood cells or less hemoglobin, your tissues, and organs—such as your heart and brain—may not get enough oxygen to work properly.
