Drugs associated with Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure

The following drugs and medications are in some way related to, or used in the treatment of this condition.

What is Anemia Associated with Chronic Renal Failure: In chronic renal failure (CRF), the kidneys slowly and progressively lose their ability to remove waste from the body, to concentrate urine, and to balance the water and mineral content of the blood. Anemia is an inevitable outcome of CRF due to the kidneys' decreased ability to produce erythropoietin—a hormone that stimulates the production of red blood cells.
