Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are a group of medicines that help take the place of a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) may not have enough EPO coming from their kidneys to tell the body to make more red blood cells. This can cause their red blood cell count to drop and anemia to develop. How to take the medicine and possible side effects to watch for are reviewed.
