Anemia Management

February 8, 2017 

Dr. Gupta is a practicing academic nephrologist and the inventor of iron replacement compound Triferic. In this KidneyTalk podcast, Dr. Gupta helps us understand anemia, its symptoms and its complications.

At one time, anemia was treated only with transfusions. Today there are more options available. Dr. Gupta offers information about these options including how intravenous iron treatments compare with other medications. Lori and Dr. Gupta discuss how you can become your own advocate by understanding your lab values. Learn details about ferritin, hemoglobin, hematocrit levels and more about what your labs mean. Learn the importance of discussing your labs and treatment options with your doctor.
