People with kidney damage, particularly those who are on hemodialysis, tend to be severely anemic. Why?

    Excessive urea excreted by the kidneys into urine prevents the bone marrow from making blood cells.
    The bone marrow cannot get enough cholesterol to make the necessary red blood cells.
    The damaged kidneys are excessively destroying red blood cells.
    There is a lack of erythropoietin.
