Why kidney failure can cause anemia?
On the one hand, almost all the erythropoietin (EPO) is made by kidneys. Kidney failure and the accumulated wastes and toxins in body can reduce the function of producing EPO, which can cause anemia.

Hemodialysis can remove the metabolites and some wastes and toxins from blood, and regulate the balance of water and electrolyte. Once the wastes and toxins are removed, the generation of EPO will increase, that is to say, red blood cells also will increase, and thus hemodialysis is suitable for severe anemia in kidney failure. Besides, hemodialysis also can prolong the lifetime of red blood cells, in view of this, it also can relieve anemia.
