BENEFITS OF ACTORISE INJECTION

In Treatment of Anemia due to chronic kidney disease

Anemia is a condition where your body does not have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen around your body. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) refers to the loss of normal kidney function over a long span of time. CKD progresses gradually over a few years but may become permanent if left untreated. CKD can lead to anemia. Actorise 200 Injection can boost your levels of red blood cells and reduce the symptoms of anemia such as tiredness and weakness. Taking this injection improves the quality of life.

In Treatment of Anemia due to cancer chemotherapy

Low red blood cell count is termed as anemia. Cancer treatment with chemotherapy often causes many side effects, one of the major ones being anemia. Actorise 200 Injection stimulates the production of red blood cells in bone marrow and regulates the haemoglobin in the blood. This treats anemia in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.
