This is due to a fall in renally produced erythropoietin, a diminished marrow response to erythropoietin, and a shortened red cell lifespan [28]. The diminished response to erythropoietin and shortened red cell lifespan may be due to effects of parathyroid hormone as discussed above. 2,3-DPG levels rise, although to a lesser degree than in patients without renal disease, and cardiac output increases to help maintain normal oxygen delivery to tissues. There is often a decline in both platelet number and platelet aggregation, as well as a fall in platelet factor 3 resulting in an increase in the bleeding time and poor clot retraction [29-31].
