Venofer is used in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in people with chronic kidney disease(CKD).
Anemia occurs when the body fails to produce healthy red blood cells due to a lack of iron in the body, preventing oxygen from being carried to different tissues throughout the body.
When people are diagnosed with CKD, it is common for them to become dependent on dialysis. Dialysis dependence usually results in people becoming anemic because it prevents the kidneys from producing enough of a hormone called erythropoietin and low levels of iron which are responsible for creating more blood cells.
As an iron replacement product, Feraheme helps restore healthy blood cells in patients and reverse anemia by providing the iron necessary for the body to make more red blood cells.
