Health Insurance for Erythropoietin
Erythropoietin is a hormone produced by the kidney and promotes the formation of red blood cells. In case the number of red blood cells decreases or the level of oxygen transported by the blood diminishes, an unknown sensor detects the change and promotes the growth of Erythropoietin. The Erythropoietin is then transported through the plasma to the bone marrow, where it accelerates the red cells production.
The major function of Erythropoietin is to initiate the synthesis of hemoglobin, the molecules within the red blood cells that transport oxygen. The normal levels of erythropoietin range from 4 up to 24 mU/ml. The low level of erythropoietin indicates a bone marrow disease, or a kidney problem or chronic diseases like cancer, AIDS, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Symptoms of lower erythropoietin are:
- Excessive bleeding
- Feeling lightheaded
- Risk of infection
- Shortness of breath
