Erythropoietin Test

Erythropoietin (EPO) is a glycoprotein hormone produced by the kidneys and, in small amounts, by the liver. EPO is a primary regulator of erythropoiesis and plays a major role in protecting RBC from destruction. The EPO test helps to diagnose various conditions such as anemia and polycythemia.

When is the Erythropoietin test recommended?

It is recommended:Testing for polycythemia, or high red blood cells, to determine whether you have too much erythropoietin. To determine whether your kidneys are still able to produce enough erythropoietin for your body.Anemia, or low red blood cell count, is usually discovered through blood tests that analyze the concentration of hemoglobin and the number of red blood cells.

What does it measure?

The Erythropoietin test: Measures the amount of a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO) in the blood. Erythropoietin (EPO) is made by cells in the kidney. This hormone instructs stem cells in the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. These cells release more Erythropoietin (EPO) when the blood oxygen level is low.Determines the cause of anemia (low red blood cells) and polycythemia (high red blood cells). It can also help to determine if your kidneys are making enough erythropoietin if you have chronic kidney disease.
