How can Venofer help people with chronic kidney disease?

Venofer (iron sucrose) can help adults with chronic kidney disease by treating one of the most common problems they experience — iron-deficiency anemia.

Iron is vital for helping your body build red blood cells, which transport oxygen throughout your body and to your brain. Iron-deficiency anemia (a condition that causes you to look pale and feel weak, tired and dizzy) is common in people with chronic kidney disease.

Venofer is a solution that is injected into the veins and absorbed by the cells that mature into red blood cells. Some research shows that iron injections ramps up the production of red blood cells more quickly than oral supplements do, particularly in people with kidney disease.
