Abstract

Persistent anemia is one of the common complication seen in individuals with chronic kidney disease(CKD). The factors contributing to anemia in CKD include loss of blood, reduced lifespan of redcell, Vitamin deficiencies, erythropoietin deficiency, iron deficiency, and inflammation. Erythropoietin deficiency appears to be the major cause of anemia among the CKD. It is well established that hemoglobin level tends to decrease in CKD individuals. In renal anemia, hemoglobin level is usually managed with iron therapy and or erythropoietin treatment or blood transfusion. NKF – KODOQI clinical practice recommends hemoglobin level to range 11g/dl. Among CKD undergoing hemodialysis(CKD 5HD). Hence it is essential to maintain recommende hemoglobin level among the individuals in order to avoid the mortality rate. In India there is dearth on the database of hemoglobin trend investigated longitudinally, and hence the present study was focused in this direction.
